Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Amir Abdullah

Children Ages 8+ • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Returning to narrate the final installment of the Tristan Strong trilogy, Amir Abdullah again triumphs with his lively characterizations. Abdullah skillfully changes accents and cadences so that characters are markedly distinct. Tristan Strong is pursuing his archenemy, King Cotton, up the Mississippi River. King Cotton is kidnapping children; Tristan must stop him, but it will not be easy. Tristan will need his Alkean friends, including the hilarious Gum Baby; his family; and his courage to prevail. Remembering and retelling African-American history and folklore are vital in defeating King Cotton. Abdullah delivers an energetic, vibrant performance; listeners are in for an exciting ride. This magical story coupled with Abdullah's talented narration equates to an audiobook that should not be missed! A.M.
