Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jeff Woodman, John Randolph-Jones

Children Ages 10+ • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1992

Set during World War II, this is the story of young Frankie's obsession with the radio and how this fixation defines his life and the lives of everyone connected with him. While parallels with television will come to mind for adult listeners, younger listeners will glory in Frankie's adventures. Jones, as the voice of the radio, and Woodman, as the voices of Avi's characters, bring this poignantly humorous book to life for a generation with no experience of listening to stories on the radio. Young people seem unable to "get" the point of the print version, perhaps because they can't hear the radio in their heads. This audio presentation is a perfect marriage to the literature and succeeds brilliantly. S.G. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 94]
