Holy cow! If you buy only one children's book on Audible, make it this one. "You wouldn't think a human being could murmur, growl and hiss all at the same time, but Meryl Streep can do anything," as a New Yorker reviewer once wrote (of her performance in Doubt), and that skill is abundantly apparent in this virtuoso performance of a time-honored children's classic. Our grandson was entranced with it tonight, listening as I turned the pages of his paperback copy. He cackled with mad delight as Streep's magic bone imitated the trumpeting of a horn, the whooshing of the wind, and the pitter-patter of rain, finally intoning "Jibbrakken Sibibble Digray...Scrabboonit!" to dispatch the wicked fox threatening young Pearl, its piglet heroine. This is one you'll listen to again and again with your kids. Highly recommended!
