Reading STONE FOX is a treasured rite of passage for school-age students. Few forget the dogsled race in which Willy faces Stone Fox in a chilling testimony of determination and love. Few students, however, have a similar knowledge of Gardiner's TOP SECRET, a poke-fun look at the school science fair scene that also champions individual creativity and fortitude. To B.D. Wong's credit, he narrates each of Gardiner's stories in a unique manner. For STONE FOX, Wong narrates with quiet reverence, respecting the power of the story and the bond among boy and dog and grandfather without imposing himself into the relationships. For TOP SECRET, Wong playfully creates personas for Allen Brewster, his archetypal science teacher, his nemesis, and each supporting character. A.R.
