Listeners will chuckle as they enjoy the latest escapades of twins Ling and Ting. Whether it’s planting cupcakes in the garden, reading each other’s minds, painting toys with lucky red paint, or crafting a story that is NOT silly, listeners can count on encountering some child-friendly twists. Narrator Tara Sands capitalizes on each surprise. She’s forceful as Ting insists that she’ll try anyway after Ling has told her she needs seeds, not cupcakes, to plant in her garden. And she’s exuberant as Ling exclaims that she can swing higher than any tree or mountain or even the clouds. At the end, Sands slows and lowers her register as she concludes Ling and Ting’s jointly written story—a “very, very silly story,” they say, that is “just like us.” A.R. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2014]
