Children Ages 8+ • 4.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1979

Sport lives an exotic life. As the only child of an absentminded artist in New York City, Sport budgets, takes care of bills, cooks, and cleans to keep their small loft apartment running. A female reader is an odd choice for a book centered on a boy, but Anne Bobby has a youthful, winning voice. Her vocal characterization is weak, but there aren't a lot of characters, and listeners won’t wonder who’s speaking. The production gains momentum when Sport inherits millions from his late grandfather and his mother suddenly wants custody. This serviceable reading of a solid story will make for good family listening. A.F. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
