Katie Kazoo learns the hard way that sometimes wishes really do come true-but not the way she plans. In this series of fun stories, Katie (and the reader) learn first-hand what it's like to walk in someone else's shoes. Anne Bobby has pegged her just right. Bobby portrays Katie and her friends in youthful, sometimes dramatic voices, with enough differentiation to tell the third-grade characters apart, although most are minor and not fully realized. Bobby's strength is in the emotions with which she embues those voices-the panic in Katie's voice, the confused and dazed voices of the principal and the counselor, the "sick-to-my-stomach" voice of George. A light and easy read is just right for middle-elementary readers. W.L.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
