Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Theo Solomon

Children Ages 8+ • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Theo Solomon delightfully introduces the English village of Merlington and its fish-loving inhabitants. Martina Minnow rescues abandoned William, who has tentacles for hair and crab claws for hands. Solomon delivers endless lessons about fish, stories about the town's 17 competitive fishmongers, and the residents' suspicions about William and the Minnow family. In addition to deftly conveying Marina's steadfast attitude toward William, Solomon's standout portrayal is that of homebound Granny Minnow, who supplies clues as Marina and William search for the mysterious fisherman who saved William as a baby. Audio is the ideal format for a heartwarming tale that emphasizes accepting those who are different. S.G.B.
