Hard work brings its rewards. When young Carl desperately wants his own boat, he happens upon a collection of wood washed up lakeside. But how can he get the additional supplies and expertise he needs with no money of his own? Odd jobs, which include picking strawberries, mending fishing nets, and moving rocks, are the answer. Each outing forges new friendships. Jacqueline Martin is an author who champions ordinary yet distinctive people. Each caring story deserves a sympathetic narrator, and Tom Stechschulte is just that person. His pace is as slow and gentle as the lapping waves, and his voice as caring as the teller of old family stories. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
