Dick King Smith has the amazing ability to tell a story about a young boy who gets to take care of a talking doll - and he is meant to be an action loving boy. The relationship with his parents and grandmother is excellent, proving a very believable response from a father that loves his son. I won't give anything away other than say that the father's reaction to finding out his son was taking care of a doll - and a very pretty Victorian Era doll at that - rather than concentrating on being a better football goalie is spot on. The result is not a whitewash of the father's desire for his son to be a man, or irrational actions either.
The narrator captures all the voices very well.
Once more, Dick King Smith made our long country drive very memorable.
