Listeners with even a passing interest in children's literature will enjoy this audiobook. Bruce Handy, author and narrator, has a style that is conversational, erudite, and humorous. His audiobook features observations and background information on books by classic writers, including Beatrix Potter, Dr. Seuss, and E.B. White. When he's quoting his subjects, he captures the personalities of the featured authors. Among others, he creates a cantankerous Maurice Sendak, an imperious C.S. Lewis, and a matter-of-fact Beverly Cleary. There is no malice in tone, however. The effect is for entertainment, and entertaining it is! Listening to WILD THINGS is akin to enjoying thoughtful, witty repartee at a publisher's cocktail party. L.T.
