Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Christian Rodska

Children Ages 10+ • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1983

When Mum and Dad decide to put Granny in a home, the kids protest. To make a point with his parents, Ivan decides to do a school project on what he perceives to be a cruel plan. The kids decide to take care of Granny themselves and work as a great team. Christian Rodska portrays each character’s strong and appealing personality. Ivan’s Russian Mum, Natasha, and Granny, with her fascinating old tales of wacky folk medicines, are re-created expertly by Rodska. He excels with the spirited descriptions and the narratives of people’s thoughts. The realistic conclusion is a great lesson for families coping with this sad but all too common situation. S.G.B.
