Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Donna Murphy

Children Ages 8+ • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

“Tutto va bene,” says Granny Torrelli, and all is well for Rosie and her neighborhood friends, but not without angst and a deeper appreciation of the vicissitudes of friendship. Creech is masterful as she weaves the parallel lives of Rosie and her grandmother into a warm kitchen fabric with all the smells, companionship, and healing powers of the cooking experience. Each of Rosie’s acquaintances passes through the kitchen to help and add a distinct flavor. Donna Murphy takes Creech’s pacing and conversation and creates something more. She sparkles in her characterizations: Granny Torrelli exudes spunk and wisdom; Rosie personifies impetuousness and eventual understanding. Murphy’s Italian inflection and storytelling delight the ear. This is a listening treasure. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
