12 Days of Listening, Day Eleven: Best Audiobook Classics

Whether discovering them for the first time, or revisiting them like an old friend, these audiobook Classics NEVER go out of style. With all brand-new recordings, experience these great stories like you’ve never heard them before! (Excuse the platitude.)

Coinciding with the 50th Anniversary of A WRINKLE IN TIME, the first three titles in Madeline L’Engle’s ageless Time Quintet have been re-released and are a must for any lover of children’s literature. A WRINKLE IN TIME (narrated by Hope Davis) is followed by A WIND IN THE DOOR and A SWIFTLY TILTING PLANET, chronicling the further adventures of the Murrary and O’Keefe families. Time and space have never been the same.

Think you know the REAL story of L. Frank Baum’s classic? More than a century after it was first released, THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ is sure to entrance a new generation of young listeners. Read by Brooke Shields and Paul Rudd, you don’t know Toto until you’ve heard the original. THE WOLVES OF WILLOUGHBY CHASE by Joan Aiken features an alternate history of England where cousins Bonnie and Sylvia must survive wicked wolves and a cruel governess named Miss Slighcarp. First published 50 years ago, there’s no time like the present to revisit Willoughby Chase. Turning the historical clock further back, D’AULAIRES’ BOOK OF GREEK MYTHS is a star-studded affair featuring the voices of Paul Newman, Sidney Poitier, Kathleen Turner, and Matthew Broderick. It is one of the premier texts introducing Greek myths to children, adults, and everyone in between.

These are Classics with a capital C. Enter to Win!
