Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Mirron Willis

Children Ages 10+ • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

A rich story and authentic sounding dialect distinguish this dynamic audio. Curtis’s Newbery Honor Book tells the story of Elijah, an 11-year-old boy who is the first freeborn black in his Buxton, Canada, settlement. Elijah is working on overcoming his fears of snakes and living down the story of how, as a baby, he threw up on Frederick Douglass. Mirron Willis delivers depth of emotion as he shapes the story's rhythms and pacing. He successfully shifts from a light comedic tone of much of the story to a tone of chilling determination when Elijah becomes involved in a dangerous mission to free a group of slaves. S.W.
