Caddie Woodlawn chronicles the life of a tomboy bordering on womanhood in pioneer Wisconsin. Even though there's no high level excitement, the story presents episodes of humanity and comedy. The book is full of children, so a younger, clearer voice might have been more appealing and believable than Alexander's. Her tone seems too mature, at first, yet she skillfully draws each child's personality through her vocal characterizations. The story isn't particularly captivating, but the performance helps to entice the listener. D.D.G. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 95]
