Children Ages 10+ • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1996

More than any other children's novel published in recent years, this 1997 Newbery Medal winner, with its multiple viewpoints, is an appropriate candidate for the six voices of this audio production. What might be difficult to unravel when read silently, or even when read aloud by a solitary voice, comes alive in this rendering by six actors, each weaving a single thread. Within their individual chapters, the actors employ accents and voicing to characterize the ethnic and regional traits of secondary characters. The distinct individual voices of the narrator, the four Souls, and the question-reader bring the patterns of this complex weaving into focus. T.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 98]
