A lively musical jingle sets the stage for this sweet story about family, friendships, and rediscovering love. When Truly's grandparents join the Peace Corps, her family is left with the task of running the failing bookstore in Pumpkin Falls. Narrator Amy Rubinate's range of pitches and speech patterns depicts the colorful characters who inhabit the small town. Rubinate's clear diction and crisp, effervescent delivery of dialogue add to the fast pace of the imaginative mystery that unfolds when Truly discovers a letter in a valuable edition of CHARLOTTE'S WEB. While Rubinate's modulations are sometimes overdone, her voice for the young protagonist is springy and light, effectively capturing Truly's youth, curiosity, and likability.
