Earphones Award Winner

Children • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

The hidden history of Old England, lovingly written by Kipling for his own children, is coupled with a brilliant reading to make this one of the premier family listening events of the year. The story has everything listeners could want: enchantment, high adventure, battles, intrigue, all wrapped up in romantic poetic language. Through pitch and pacing alone, Nadia May conveys not only the distinct voices of the children, Dan and Una, but also those of the impish Puck and a host of characters who tell the story of those who lived near Pook’s Hill. In true turn-of-the-century fashion, the book isn’t the least bit politically correct, but Kipling’s language fairly glows and, after all, how could he know about modern-day sensibilities? Allow yourself to succumb to the magical tale, awakened by Dan and Una on Midsummer’s Eve and brought exquisitely to life by Nadia May. S.G.
