by | Read by Bill Wallis

Children Ages 4-6 • 1.6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1993, 1999

Two stories told completely through letters from a grandfather to a grandchild could be dull, but British performer Bill Wallis brings them to life. These companion tales feature a dynamic team: the grandfather and his irrepressible, not-always-faithful dog, Roo. Wallis performs the rollicking tale THE LAST COWBOYS with energetic flair; his quieter rendition of the grandfather's quest to see THE LAST POLAR BEARS before the ice caps melt is both funny and moving. These stories may not immediately grab every listener, but Roo's enthusiastic mishaps will resonate with children, and Wallis inhabits his grandfatherly role so fully that all will soon be won over.
