The touchstone of Polly Horvath's story craft is larger-than-life characters. THE VACATION welcomes Aunts Pigg and Magnolia, whose care of young Henry during summer vacation provides the stuff of tall tales. The survival skills that Henry hones are not those of an ordinary summer outing! Kirby Heyborne is unflappable as young Henry. No matter what situation the baby-sitting aunts present, Henry finds a way to endure. Heyborne's even tones and steady pacing belie the preposterousness of each motel or sightseeing stop. He adds a fine twang and drawn-out phrasing as each self-centered aunt. Will Henry's parents ever return? A.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
