by | Read by Peter Thomas

Children Ages 10+ • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1975

With joyful exuberance, the unforgettable Tuck family and dear friend, Winnie Foster, come to life in this superb reading. Thomas honors both the subtle tensions and the underlying humor in this tale of a family that gains immortality and the mortal ten-year-old who befriends them. The novel examines deep philosophical questions about life and death in a way that makes them accessible and meaningful to children. Thomas's well-modulated reading, subtle character voicing, and perfect timing ensure that the reading is wholly riveting. Faithful to the shifting emotions of the story, Thomas provides an impeccable rendering of this classic children's fantasy. T.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 94]
