Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by C.J. Critt

Children Ages 10+ • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1994

Narrator C.J. Critt's captivating, versatile voice creates unique characters for the cast of normal and eccentric students of Woodrow Wilson Elementary School. Author Robinson offers a portrait of the Herdmans, one kid per grade, a tough, free-spirited, undisciplined bunch who, at times, terrorize and, at other times, are very resourceful. Their hilarious ideas and deeds include tattooing a baby's bald head with Magic Markers, putting turtles down kids' shirts, and discovering a secret passage in the teachers' room. C.J. Critt narrates at a laid-back, unhurried pace, using her expressiveness to play up the comic moments for all they're worth. Though recommended for ages 10 and up, the whole family will laugh and relate to Critt's excellent telling of Robinson's timeless tale. J.H.B.
