by | Read by Peter Francis James

Children • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1971

Virginia Hamilton is a masterful storyteller, who brings the reader into the mind, heart and spirit of her characters. This reading by Peter Francis James splendidly transforms her work into audio. James creates accents, speech patterns and personal quirks for each character. Junior Brown is a three-hundred-pound, pampered genius; his only friend, Buddy Clark, lives by his wits on the streets. As Junior's grip on reality loosens, Buddy's resourcefulness faces its greatest challenge. This amazing story will appeal to listeners of all ages.
