I LIKE YOUR SHOES Frankie Jackson, Book 3

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Janet Metzger

Children Ages 8+ • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Janet Metzger exuberantly introduces life at Dickory Dock Harbor, its (mostly) likable residents, and their quirky lifestyles. Listeners meet young New Jersey visitor Frankie, who is spending the summer there. Since she's on probation, she must send her judge a weekly essay on what she's learned. It's a pleasure to hear her reflections. Frankie befriends realistically portrayed Flip, who is on the spectrum and is technologically savvy. Adding to the excitement, Frankie joins a pitching competition on reality TV. Metzger vibrantly renders the story's wordplay, as well as Frankie's sincere quotations from a book about body language. The most fun is bossy Margie, a fading TV star who's comical every time she speaks. The delightful story and chatty characters guarantee satisfaction for listeners for all ages. S.G.B.
