Annie Potts's rousing narration captures the heart of the high-spirited, plucky Annie in this classic children's story about an orphan who finds a family that loves her. Potts's range of tones nicely contrasts the orphans' personalities, bringing out Pepper's boldness and fire as well as little Molly's meekness. Potts portrays the cruel Miss Hannigan's harsh shrillness when she scolds the children in her orphanage; in contrast, Potts portrays Miss Farrell's sweetness towards Annie with a gentle, soothing voice. Potts does not always transition smoothly from voice to voice, and at times her narration is rushed. But listeners may be too captivated with the overall character portrayals and energetic pace of the story to really mind. M.F. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2014]
