Dion Graham is pure magic behind the microphone as he narrates Alice’s Farm, a fun family-friendly story about Alice the rabbit and her furry companions. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss Maryrose Wood’s new tale that feels like a classic. In the story, Alice makes a deal with other wild animals to grow a garden in order to keep the land from being bulldozed. A new hipster family moves in, unaware that the wild creatures are the ones keeping the farm running. Dion Graham pulls out all the stops, imbuing each character with such passion and personality that listeners will cherish every second of this beautifully woven tale.
