THE HERO NEXT DOOR

by | Read by Adenrele Ojo, Caitlin Gold, Dominic Hoffman, Kirby Heyborne, Frankie Corzo, and a Full Cast

Children Ages 8+ • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Fourteen stellar narrators each read one short story in this anthology by a diverse group of authors. The fictional stories all feature ordinary young people performing extraordinary acts of kindness and friendship. Some are large and heroic, and some are seemingly small but still meaningful. Most memorable is "Reina Madrid" by R.J. Palacio, in which narrator Frankie Corzo brings 1970s Queens to life with New York accents and exquisite Spanish pronunciation. The stories cross genres from contemporary to fantasy to mystery, so there is something for every listener. Each story is about 25 minutes long, making it great for short car trips. Listeners will be inspired to spread kindness and help make the world a better place. S.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2019]
