Narrator Cassandra Morris's bright soprano drawl as Elsie Mae transports listeners into a series of warm afternoons in the Okefenokee Swamp. Elsie Mae is eager to spend her summer there with her grandparents and favorite uncle. But she has her hands full with a new dog, a mission to save the swamp from destruction, a plan to thwart the hog bandits who are terrorizing her neighbors, and the unexpected company of her cousin, Henry James, an aspiring preacher. Morris's pacing captures the wide swings between relaxed summer exploration and flurries of scheming and activity. Her characterizations of Elsie Mae's family and neighbors create a vibrant web of people who support her in her adventures. This is an ideal vacation listen for those who like slice-of-life stories, down-home tales, and summer days full of daring feats. K.S.B. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2017]
