Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jill Clayburgh

Children Ages 8+ • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1967

Thinking that running away will somehow change their lives, Claudia and her younger brother, Jamie, set off for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where they get entangled in a mystery. Claudia ultimately discovers much more than she anticipated. Jill Clayburgh narrates at a pace that allows young listeners to absorb the story. Clayburgh's delivery captures the personalities of both Claudia and Jamie, as well as that of the opinionated Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. Clayburgh's inflections also express the subtleties in the relationship between Claudia and Jamie, drawing us closer to the characters. This well-loved Newbery award winner is enjoyably brought to life. J.K.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2010]
