Noah Wall's engaging narration enhances this delightful audio and picture book production. A young kingfisher named Mel bravely decides to take her first dive out of the nest. As the tree's other residents anxiously look on--or desperately try to save her--courage prevails, Mel's fall turns to flight, and her friends' fears turn to cheers. Wall captures the playful, spontaneous energy of the narrative and the award-winning illustrations with agile pacing and endearing characterizations. A buoyant musical score and excellent sound effects complement Wall's performance and contribute to the story's inspirational can-do spirit. The creative whole is a joyful read-aloud experience that listeners of all ages will want to enjoy again and again. A brief author's endnote provides age-appropriate information about kingfishers.
