THE GREAT UNEXPECTED

by | Read by Heather O'Neill, Erin Moon

Children Ages 8+ • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Creech’s book is like a jigsaw puzzle—with two orphan girls, a mysterious boy, and a rich old lady who appears to be plotting murder as the pieces. Dual narration by Heather O'Neill and Erin Moon adds distance between the two subplots as events unfold on both sides of the Atlantic. Naomi and Lizzie, voiced by Moon, have slightly Southern accents. O'Neill gives the rich old lady a stately Irish accent, perfect for meting out provocative tidbits of information that add to the intrigue. When the girls go to Ireland, the narrators shift seamlessly, making what was familiar seem foreign. The switch heightens the fanciful ending.
