Here's a hit! It's a futuristic, coming-of-age story set in Zimbabwe in 2194. In the teeming city of Harare, three kids escape the safety of home and search for true-life experiences and Scout badges. Their story, a 1994 Newbery Honor book, is one of the richest offerings in children's literature. George Guidall has a plateful of characters, a wide diversity of emotions and many dramatic changes to present. In this outstanding performance, he rises to every challenge, roaring like the She Elephant, cooing over the infant Sekai and speaking in the resonant tones of the ancient Zimbabwean gods. L.R.S.
