It's going to be hard for 10-year-old Sheila to sustain her "The Great" image as the Tubman family spends the summer in Tarrytown and she must face two of her greatest fears -- dogs (their rental house includes a beagle) and water (her parents are insisting on swimming lessons). Judy Blume has written numerous books in which she expresses the certainties and uncertainties of childhood and adolescence with wit, understanding and sympathy; this is one of her best. She's a talented reader, too. Every bit of the warmth, humor and insightfulness of her writing comes across in her reading. Blume's fans read her books over and over; they'll listen to this audiobook again and again. C.R.A. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 97]
