Amber Brown appreciates the independence that comes with NOT having to rely on adults for everything. As her birthday approaches, she desperately wants a watch so she can be independent. Danziger laces the text with time references--from a caterpillar crossing Amber's shoe as she waits impatiently for her friend Justin to time jokes that will keep the beginning chapter book crowd smiling. What IS it that makes Justin late for a play date? Dana Lubotsky's voice has a childlike quality, and she narrates with both the matter-of-factness and urgency of an almost 7-year-old. A moderate pace assures the listener time to follow the storyline and appreciate Tony Ross's illustrations. Perky music provides background. A.R.
