Children Ages 4-6 • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 2006

Listeners will find nine beloved stories all featuring Henkes's whimsical mice characters, including bossy Wendell, nervous Wemberly, and irrepressible and impetuous Lilly, swinging her new purse. Christine Ebersole and Richard Thomas (yes, of John-Boy fame) take turns reading such classics as Julius, Baby of the World, Chrysanthemum, Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse, and Wemberly Worried. Each does a fine job showcasing Henkes's gentle and perceptive wit and capturing his clever and child-pleasing prose. Taking turns, Ebersole and Thomas are as gracious as parents reading aloud at bedtime--though one hopes children will follow along as they listen, so as not to miss Henkes's delightful illustrations.
