Richard Mitchley lends his good-humored, querulous voice to one of Terry Pratchett’s earlier (1971) children’s fantasies. Pratchett is best known these days for the hilarious Discworld series. This book’s title pretty much explains its contents, being the adventures on and in a carpet by carpet creatures. The British Mitchley is a good choice for this kind of book, especially if children are listening, because he sounds so kindly and reads with proper deliberation. He brings the absurd premise alive for those willing to suspend their disbelief, and a good time is had by all. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 00]
