Children Ages 10+ • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

With her parents leaving for Peru, Margaret Rose Kane cannot understand why her two beloved uncles, Max and Morris, haven't offered to take her in. Instead, she is sent to camp. The uncles are fighting to save three towers they've crafted from porcelain, scrap metal, and glass over the past forty-five years. After Uncle Max rescues her from despised Camp Telequa, its director, and the seven harpies in her cabin, Margaret joins their battle. Her nonviolent civil disobedience is humorous and heroic. Molly Ringwald offers a low-key reading of Konigsburg's thought-provoking exploration into the meaning of neighborhood, art, and family. While Ringwald's pronunciations are occasionally off, her narration is expressive, enhancing this tender look at individuality and interconnectedness. S.J.H.
