Sophie Aldred's perky personality shines in these utterly charming and unusual stories. Paradise House is a multifamily apartment building in London, where immigrants and native Londoners live and mix. In THE ZOO . . ., Danny must settle for a goldfish when what he really wants is a sheepdog. He and friends Nathan from Nigeria and Annie from China create their own zoo, attracting everyday creatures. In THE TREASURE . . ., Nathan befriends Old McDonald and learns of buried treasure. Aldred is perfect as a grumpy senior, children of various nationalities, typical parents, and a tell-it-like-it-is granny. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
