by | Read by Michael Morpurgo

Children Ages 8+ • 1.45 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1995

This memorable story of people facing the challenges of survival against the forces of nature and the sea comes alive though the author/narrator's ability to convey his characters' deep emotions. Morpurgo's strong, low voice carries the listener through the never-ending currents of good and bad fortunes that beset these people, marking the rise and fall in their fates. Morpurgo's understated British accent enables his portrayal of an American sailor to come across realistically. The strength of Morpurgo's voice, the strong clear cadence of his reading, so like the force of the elemental sea and wind, compels the listener into the enchantment of the story. A classically simple plot made to capture the minds and imaginations of young listeners. P.A.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 98]
