Piccolo Grande's life will never be the same after Aunt Annabelle descends upon him. The chubby, noisy, and squeaky-voiced guardian angel befriends lonely Piccolo after he loses his parents. Narrator Stanley McGeagh is adorable as Piccolo, who has NEVER lied until his aunt arrives and she must show him how. McGeagh also is winning as he portrays a less imaginative and more mature Piccolo and a good-natured Aunt Annabelle. Lines like "the boy, not a sneak by nature, snuck across the room" are enhanced by a delivery that plays up their humor. This unusual story focuses on differences in a most positive way.
