Reviews for Peter and the Secret of Rundoon : Library Edition

AudioFile Reviews 2008 April/May
Fly with narrator Jim Dale through Peter Pan's third adventure. Lord Ombra kidnaps Peter, and Molly and the Starcatchers follow them to Rundoon, home of the maniacal King Zarboff. Dale organizes the vast geography of the adventure so you'll never lose track of the story. He manages individual voices for pirates, children, villains, and Tink without overacting. His warm, conversational reading moves the action forward and engages the listener. Dale has the uncanny knack of knowing his characters; he presents each personality to us as an intimate acquaintance. One caveat: Due to low sound levels and Dale's relatively constant pitch, this recording is not for listening in the car. Much of the dialogue then becomes muffled. For any other occasion, however, Dale's recording is a memorable flight of fancy. C.A. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
