In the secluded Dutch territory of Sleepy Hollow, nebbish schoolmaster Ichabod Crane competes with the town hero for the hand of Katrina Van Tassel, the 18-year-old daughter and sole child of a wealthy farmer. As Crane leaves a party at the Van Tassel's farm one autumn evening, he is pursued by the Headless Horseman, an apparition said to be the ghost of a Hessian trooper snuffed out by a stray cannonball.

This is well-loved classic and knows the story, of course, so it's all about the performance, and Tom Mison is perfection. He has a perfect voice for audiobooks, and his acting ability makes his reading soar. Loved it.
