Who is better at presenting a Judy Blume story than the author herself? Blume effectively portrays each of her characters from the grandparents to the mynah bird ("Hello, Stupid"). Because she knows exactly what she intended, Blume enlivens this story of an extended family on vacation. Pace, timing and the lisp of the "little kids" make for a fun listening experience. The narrator adds the final flourish when she sings several times as the text demands. This delightful story is perfect for its audience and ends with Blume promoting reading.
