Young Sweetness, Diane Stanley's lovable orphan, is back! Now that her adopted dad, Tex, has taken in the orphans, Sweetness sets her sights, unbeknownst to him, on reuniting him with his long lost love. Reading is key to her goal, and the place to be is the local school. Sweetness is undaunted when the teacher turns out to be Mrs. Sump, the former mistress of the orphanage. One could not ask for a better narrator for this tall tale than Tom Bodett. His pace is easy and his twang perfect. Neither Tex's cooking nor his letters written on soap wrappers can faze Bodett. As he spins this story, take time to savor Brian Karas's fine illustrations. A.R. 2004 Audie Award Finalist
