Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Andrew Sachs

Children Ages 8+ • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1988

When MCC talks himself into a job and a place to live in Ailsa Povey's mother's down-in-the-dumps antique shop, business immediately improves. Berkshire spins one engaging story after another for potential customers about the treasures for sale there. The individual stories are woven chapter by chapter into the larger tale. Are they the truth or a pack of lies? Andrew Sachs draws listeners into Carnegie Medal winner Geraldine McCaughrean's captivating yarns with a master storyteller's ease. His wide scope of accents and voices beguiles the listener as MCC offers stories ranging in style from romance to gothic, from horror to folktale. McCaughrean's literary fancies couldn't be in better voice as Andrew Sachs's performance takes her 12 enchanting tales and makes them even more magical. S.J.H.
