This is an excellent production. Some of Britain's best contempory actors give voice to some wonderful animal characters. Music and sound effects add to this production's ability to transfer you to the Wild Wood, the Open Road or to Toad Hall. Slow and gentle, its great for even young children, while being well-crafted enough to smooth the brow of a harrassed adult.
I still think it would help to read or listen to the full length unabridged version first to help your mind fill in the blanks, but overall it was a much better listen than a single reader trying to do all the characters.
"The Ultimate Dramatisation"
I love this dramatisation of the wind in the willows it is the best i have heard of this classic story with a full cast and sound effects you wont find any better than this production.
All the characters of the wind in the willows are my favourite but i do love toad as many will agree as he seems to be everyones favourite.
The cast members make this dramatisation come to life as does the sound effects i suppose its a complete package. The songs are great and its probably the best version of this classic tale.
I have listened to this many times and i even bought the audio CD from amazon.
I will never get tired of listening to this dramatisation its just fantastic.
I remember this from childhood and wanted to download so my son could enjoy it as I did. He is a little young to follow the story but enjoys the narration and in time I know he will love it. The great thing is it's entertaining for adults to listen to and an absolute classic unlike some more modern audiobooks for children. 100% recommend, beautiful narration. Loved it.
