The Children's Book Trust: "One of the great children's classics of the 20th century."
Rave Reviews: Horn Book, Riverbank Review

"This journey of the tin wind-up mouse and his child is one of the grandest hope and scale. Their quest is composed of distinct parts, each a satisfying episode unto itself. As the fortune-telling frog says, "Make of fortune what you will." The mice do so superbly in this timeless recording. William Dufris narrates with outstanding voice artistry. --AudioFile Magazine

"By turns poignant and witty, allegorical and fantastic, the many animals and wind-up characters who populate the story are all dynamically portrayed in this audio version narrated by William Dufris. He deserves enormous credit for managing to make the audio sound like a full-cast recording. There seems to be no end to the voices, accents, and styles of speech he can muster and as a result listening to this extended fable becomes enormously enriched. He keeps all the characters straight for listeners, and provides them with a life and appeal that actually adds quite a bit to the printed version. The exceptional quality of the narration may bring even more listeners than readers to the story." --School Library Journal April 2003

Supremely witty and full of adventure, this is an audio for both children and adults. A tour de force narration by award-winning narrator William Dufris allows the listener to discover Hoban's richly poignant tale layer by layer and come back again and again to discover more.
