9780140373691: The Better Brown Stories

The Brown family really don't like the stories being written about them - so they go to the author to complain. The result is a very funny collection of short stories about a monstrous dog, some Mysterious Men, a forgotten baby, baffled police, and a bewildered town.

About the Author:

Allan Ahlberg is in the super-league of children's writers with sales exceeding seventeen million and library borrowings of thirteen million. In collaboration with his late wirfe, Janet, he has published many enduring titles, among them Each Peach Pear Plum, Peepo!, Burglar Bill and The Jolly Postman. In addition he has written novels, collections of stories, sets of easy-readers and joke books.

From AudioFile:

Richard Mitchley is at his versatile, energetic best in this reading of Ahlberg's sequel about the Brown family and the writer who creates them. Family members get the opportunity to persuade the "Writer" to change parts of the plot or characterizations, as they would like them to be. At the same time, the writer and his mother are characters in the story, as well. This leads to various degrees of whimsical confusion. Numerous villains and minor characters also give the narrator a chance to demonstrate his broad range of sound effects and vocalizations. These are delivered with impeccable precision, leading the listener comfortably through the story's twists and turns. J.J.F. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
