Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ron McLarty

Children Ages 8+ • 45 min. • Unabridged • © 2005

Mercy is no ordinary pig. She is the “porcine wonder” who delights in hot buttered toast and can do no wrong in the eyes of Mr. and Mrs. Watson. And serendipity is also on Mercy’s side--whether it be as the bed crashes through the second floor or the convertible travels a mite too fast. Ron McLarty takes this beginning chapter book to soaring heights. His tone and inflection bring life to the simplest of sentences and unlock the wonders of nuance for the listener. His pacing validates each character and action. Laugh as the police officer has a conversation with himself and as Baby Lincoln takes the sails right out of her sister’s proclamation. It’s a pleasure to sit down at the Watsons’ table! A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
