Narrator LaQuita James brings fresh joy to this engaging story of friendship, sharing, and community. Omu's name means "queen" in the Igbo language of Nigeria. When she makes a stew for dinner, the wafting smell entices neighbors all over the community to knock on her door. Omu shares her stew with every visitor until there is none left for herself. James creates different voices for each visitor, who include a little boy, a police officer, and hot dog vendor. Listeners hear the sadness in Omu's voice when she realizes the stew is gone and the laugh in her voice when all the visitors unexpectedly return to show their gratitude.
