Chester Howard's seatmate at his new school is Joe, a boy who has a tough time learning anything in school. Their unusual friendship typifies Anne Fine's stories and how they connect with their intended audience of young teens in subtle ways. Better known to her British audience, Fine is the author of MRS. DOUBTFIRE. Narrator Richard Mitchley swiftly engages young listeners with his command of the dialogue though American ears may need a little practice with the accents. His lively reading entertains but doesn't lose its message about working with a person's strengths. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 97]
