Kelley Hazen's spirited delivery enhances Campbell's descriptive writing in these three stories about 14-year-old Emily Walters. "High Country Painter" present a talkative Emily and a realistic-sounding bird that directs Emily to magically draw obstacles to divert a grizzly bear. In "Map Maker," Emily meets an eerie-sounding ghost who helps her save a sacred forest from developers. In "Sweetbay Magnolia," Hazen captures Grandma Walters's elderly voice as well as her persistence and wit to perfection. Young listeners will enjoy hearing Emily explain about TMI--too much information. Hazen's skill at creating believable bird and ghost voices adds to the listening pleasure.
