COMMENTARY
Reviews for Alcazar AudioWorks' production of The Story of Dr. Dolittle
A childhood favorite
I loved this story as a child. The kindly Dr. who finds his way despite all insurmountable difficulties, the clever animals and the far fetched voyages and adventures are all wrapped up nicely with a satisfying ending. Now my children love this story and narration and have listen to it several times. Frohman's narration is well done with little quirky accents and a good sense of timing. This was a good purchase. Now we're onto The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle
