Meet Donald Zinkoff. He loves school and snickerdoodles. He wants to grow up to be a mailman, just like his dad, and he never notices when he "loses." Listeners follow Donald's life from first through sixth grade. He has a zest for life that some find endearing and others just plain odd. Steve Buscemi's performance provides a feeling of familiarity with the Zinkoff family. His low, mellow tones and laid-back reading make for a comfortable listening experience. Characters are undifferentiated vocally, but that isn't necessary here. Because of Spinelli's writing and Buscemi's reading, listeners will find Donald Zinkoff enchanting. J.M.P.
