Pilkey’s Caldecott Honor Book is a visual delight. Quietly, the sky goes from night to dawn to morning as the paperboy rises and rides through the neighborhood attending to his duties. Forest Whitaker narrates with the gentle voice the story merits and gives pause, as each spread unfolds, for the listener to take in the scene and the subtle changes of light and darkness before he interjects the story line. Sound effects such as the snapping of the rubber bands around the newspapers and the barks of his dog offer just enough reality to the delicate scene. Listen in and savor the calm before daylight and the dedication of this young boy and his dog. A.R. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
