Orphan Ernie Banks returns to rural Illinois to rediscover his past. He is the prophesied rainmaker for a tribe of ten-inch-high Puddlejumpers. Narrator Sean Kenin will have listeners rooting for Ernie to uncover his long-lost human family. Kenin's folksy, direct delivery is as intimate as it is appealing. We're drawn into the fantasy because Ernie Banks is all heart, and Kenin portrays him as such. Listeners won't want to leave him before his happy reunion with his father, not to mention his hair-raising Puddlejumper adventures. Other memorable characters include Joey, the irascible cowgirl, and salt-of-the-earth farmer Russ Fraser. Give a Puddlejumper cry of "hooty-hoo!" for this sparkling listen.
