Children Ages 8+ • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

In this holiday tale, Robin Miles's vocalizations of the five Vanderbeeker children, their family, and their friends place the listener firmly in the family's old brownstone in their Harlem neighborhood. By using distinct voices for each of the characters, Miles displays the generational and ethnic diversity of the family and their community--from 4-year-old Laney to the Vanderbeekers's elderly upstairs neighbors. When their crotchety landlord, Mr. Beiderman, decides against renewing their lease, the children conspire to save their beloved home. Additional dramas, such as misunderstandings between friends and preparing for Christmas despite the need to quickly move into a new home, are captured in Miles's narration. This is a heartwarming story with a "happily-ever-after" that is sure to delight listeners of every age. A.L.S.M. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2017]
