Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Stanley McGeagh

Children Ages 8+ • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Swedish author Henning Mankell, who created the Kurt Wallander series, has written a staggeringly beautiful, bittersweet story about Lukas, who receives a kitten for his seventh birthday. Narrator Stanley McGeagh is masterful as Lukas, his plain-spoken dad, gentle mom, and brother, "Thunderbolt." When Night, the cat, goes missing, Lukas copes, makes difficult decisions, and finds a way to keep Night in his life always. There’s a bit of humor, too—McGeagh amusingly portrays a child's view of clothing as a gift. This gorgeous tale has much to say to young people and adults, especially those who've lost a beloved pet.
