by | Read by Andrew Scott

Children Ages 6+ • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1945

With a varied pace and a veritable arsenal of spot-on accents, Andrew Scott takes to Dahl’s short stories with a deft hand and a playful, deliberate enthusiasm. His ability to rapidly juggle characters carries him gracefully through complex dialogue and heavily detailed monologues, and his meticulous pacing helps listeners to absorb the smallest of plot points and the most intimate of moments without sacrificing the momentum of each account. Distinction is key with short story collections, and Scott has a gift for developing rich characterizations in a short amount of time, giving an additional layer of life to the stories. His soft intonation escorts listeners through the text with ease. K.S.B. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2013]
