Narrator Madeleine Barker takes on this New England version of England's WIND IN THE WILLOWS. She delivers a variety of accents and tones for a group of inhabitants that includes its own Rat, Mole, Badger, Otter, and Weasel families. Barker's lively narration adds to the sense of adventure, making her the perfect fit for this lyrically written tale. Barker's voice rises in surprise in her portrayal of Mr. Rat's inquisitive daughter, who solves a mystery and is part of a thrilling journey. Barker's personifications of the other resident animals are executed perfectly: a fast pace for a warbler whose excited words run together, squeaky voices for chipmunks, an upbeat tempo for a wren's Pollyanna preaching, and a high pitch for a mockingbird's repetitive statements.
