Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Meryl Streep, January LaVoy, Kirby Heyborne, MacLeod Andrews, and a Full Cast

Children Family Listening • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1952

Melissa Sweet, author of SOME WRITER, introduces this edition of CHARLOTTE'S WEB with insights into White’s inspiration for the sweet story. Then, Meryl Streep and a stellar cast take us to the barnyard. She draws the listener in with a smooth, consistent delivery and unobtrusive interjections highlighting the emotions of the dialogue. Every portrayal of every character, major and minor, bursts with personality. January LaVoy’s Charlotte is thoughtful and patient. Kirby Heyborne takes Wilbur through a range of emotions as he goes from immature self-pity to the confidence of a true friend. Tavia Gilbert’s goose delivery, Robin Miles’s wise pronouncements as Old Sheep, Macleod Andrews’s sneering, greedy self-interest as Templeton the rat, and all the rest of the characters make the barnyard an inviting place to spend the day. N.E.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2019 Best Audiobook, 2020 Audies Winner © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
