    In this classic story, first published in 1906, a false accusation places the father in jail, leaving his wife and three children on their own. Circumstances force mother and the children to leave their ideal life in London to live near a train station in a rustic cottage. As the good natured children work to rescue their father, they befriend and help others along the way.

    "English? French? New York? Puzzling accents..."

    Story
    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Renee Raudman?

    Ms. Raudman would have been an adequate reader if she'd just skipped the accents....she just couldn't seem to keep them straight...Peter often sounded faintly of New York City, while their mother sort of slurred over into nearly a French accent at times. Meanwhile, she mispronounced a number of British words.

    Her inflections were overall decent for the different voices, I just think that it would have been better if she'd skipped the accents altogether.
