Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Nigel Lambert

Children Ages 8+ • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

The sparkling Nigel Lambert shines with this timely story. Connor is delighted when Grandad agrees to try out a modern home in which the elderly can remain independent with the help of robots. Chief among them is Nurse Bot, who monitors Grandad’s every move. Lambert characterizes the overly responsible robot with a heavy Scots accent. He expertly mimics the kids, Grandad himself, and Nurse Bot’s constant refrain, “Nanny knows best.” Soon Grandad is held prisoner by Nurse Bot, and Connor must rescue him. When Nurse Bot develops a crush on Grandad, she develops an American southern accent, which adds to the hilarity and further demonstrates Lambert’s skill. This unique story could teach kids what just might be ahead in their later years. S.G.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
