Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Wendy Dillon

Children Ages 10+ • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Squirrel, born a stray dog, learns the hard way about survival. Starting from Squirrel’s older years and looking back, Martin allows the reader to listen with concern, but not fear, as Squirrel tells of her life from stray puppy to well-loved pet. Wendy Dillon gives all the characters individual voices, which accurately portray George’s impatience, Marcy’s bewilderment, and Susan’s kindness. Squirrel’s voice is exceptional; it is clearly that of an older, experienced dog--husky and warm, steady and calm--and Dillon paces it slowly to enhance the sense of age, patience, and wisdom. The nuances in her voice create images that range from carefree to bittersweet. Squirrel’s life story is told with acceptance and a poignant grace. W.L.S.
