Make room next to Burnett's novel and the popular film version for this fine audio performance. Carter initially plays Mary Lennox and her cousin, Colin Craven, as the ill-tempered, spoiled children they are. But as the cousins bond and take in the sustenance of the moor, Carter softens her tone to that of gleeful, healthy children. The listener shares the children's delight with the English countryside through the narrator's savory description of the setting and her earthy depiction of its rural inhabitants. Carter doesn't miss a beat in telling this story of triumph. M.P.T. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 94]
