9780140390001: The Better Brown Stories

The Browns are not like other storybook characters -- they're bored with their story! So off they go to visit the Writer, demanding more excitement. Less homework. Less housework. No French tests. "We want a better story!" they demand. Instead they get five stories filled with adventure and mayhem.

About the Author:

Allan Ahlberg's many award-winning and best-selling children's stories include Peek-a-Boo!, Each Peach, Pear, Plum, The Jolly Postman, The Giant Baby, and The Better Brown Stories. He lives in England.

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
