Product Description

From AudioFile

Martin Jarvis gives such a spectacular performance in this classic woodland adventure story that it would be a shame to limit his talents to children. Jarvis gives each character his own voice, and individual personalities shine through as Ratty, Mole, Toad, and Badger jump into one adventure after another. Jarvis seems to enjoy Grahame's classic tale, and his enthusiasm and amusement are contagious. He flawlessly captures the hilarity of Toad's bad driving and times perfectly the rousing dialogue between characters. The selection of wind quintets between chapters emphasizes the pastoral scenes created by Grahame, making for five-star entertainment in a tiny package. H.L.S.

A great reading Dec 28 2011
By A. M. Loza - Published on Amazon.com
Mr. Jarvis's reading is superb. This and the excellence of the text made for an enjoyable listening experience for both my son and me with many repeat listenings. I've read the unabridged book and feel that this abridgment is well done.

response to the one review given so far Feb. 13 2010
By C. Bancroft - Published on Amazon.com
First of all, it is not Kenneth Grahame that is narrating here. It is Martin Jarvis. Secondly, if you cannot follow the plot line of "Wind in the Willows" you should not be writing reviews of ANYTHING. Good GOD!!! It is a JUNIOR Classic. My only criticism is that it is abridged which I am opposed to on ethical grounds.

I have been listening to this wonderful recording with my daughter as she grew up (best heard in the car, on long drives) - and now with the next generation. It is the best recording of this story - the narrator is stunning in his ability to change voices. You will not regret this purchase.

Great Narration but didn't like the plot Nov. 1 2009
By Peter D. Reimer - Published on Amazon.com

I have nothing against the quality of the narration, Gramme does a great job, but I just didn't like the story. It was very difficult to follow, even for me. I tried playing this for my children at night, and afterwards they would always have to ask me what happened. But they kept asking for it again. I never read the book as a kid so that didn't help. I mean I just didn't like that toad character. I will get a CD in the future that is easier for kids to follow. I bought this after it was given a good mention in the National Review Magazine.
