by | Read by Johnny Heller

Children Ages 10+ • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1993

Fifth-grader Patrick Lowe overcomes his fear of reading and proves to his peers that he's gifted, not stupid. The distinctive and unusual qualities of Johnny Heller's voice prove ideal for portraying both the male and female 10-year-old main characters, Celina and Patrick. He slightly shifts his intonation for the adults, adding more mature pronunciations and stronger tones. Heller is best at interpreting the individual emotions of each character, which include a wide range of intensity and variety. Deftly performing each individual, he provides well-defined and unique voices for every one. Pacing the speed of the reading to match the emotional intensity of the story, Heller compels the listener's attention to the end. P.A.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 97]
