It isn't hard to imagine sitting with narrator Chris Potts as she tells this story. Her presentation is welcoming and intimate as she shares an old Russian tale of a girl who is living with her great-aunt, Olga. Potts's elderly aunt sounds demanding and gruff as she admonishes young Nanushka about the chores she expects to be completed during her absence. Portraying Nanushka, Potts ranges through many emotions-- from loneliness and despair over her tasks to delighted abandon as she plays with imaginary friends--sometimes Chinese dolls or top-spinning Peder or a fellow bubble lover. Listeners will hear her elation when the neighborhood provides an unexpected surprise. Story chapters alternate with musical selections of Rachmaninoff, Ravel, Bizet, and Beethoven. A perfect selection for family listening. A.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2018]
