THE MOST IMPORTANT THING Stories About Sons, Fathers, and Grandfathers

by | Read by Todd Haberkorn

Children Ages 10+ • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Todd Haberkorn passionately narrates seven stories that illustrate the dynamics of son, father, and grandfather relationships. The stories are told in the first and third person, with the boys ranging in age from 11 to 13. Haberkorn is splendid regardless of age, and his enthusiasm keeps listeners wanting to learn what happens next. In "The Amalfi Duo," Marco's grandad is his hero who seems to know everything UNTIL they take recorder lessons together. The subtle change in their relationship is audible in Haberkorn's thoughtful delivery. Most moving is "Departed," in which Luke scatters his beloved dad's ashes on a lake they both loved. "Tighty Whities or Boxers?" is hilarious when high- spirited Ryan "interviews" the guy who wants to marry his mom. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2016]
