Children • 8 hrs • Unabridged • © 1993

Writing sequels to literary classics is one of the literary trends of the day, and it's not surprising that children's classics are now sprouting sequels. The Willows In Winter is a reasonably competent successor to the Graham classic, Wind In the Willows. We have the same animals marvelously brought to life by actor Bernard Cribbins, the same setting, the same Edwardian enthusiasms and British English. Once again Toad is in trouble but rescued by his kindly, less dashing friends. Without the dramatic skill of the narrator the book would come across as stuffy and out-of-date. Cribbins makes this recording a lively theatrical experience that will be enjoyed by sophisticated youthful readers, as well as adults who are in listening range.
