Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Mutiyat Ade-Salu

Children Ages 4-6 • 1.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

When a talented storywriter and a compelling storyteller get together, the result is an irresistible audio experience. Listen in to four stories about young Anna Hibiscus, who lives with her family in “amazing Africa.” Anna is every child—spontaneous, forthright, and loving. She’s reticent to perform before visiting school guests, disturbed by modernization in the family compound, thinks she knows the best way to care for her hair, and is wide-eyed at the daily lives of children living across the river. Mutiyat Ade-Salu’s soft-spoken voice and confiding tone guide the listener into the thick of Anna’s adventures. Her leisurely pace and hints of pregnant pauses heighten the drama. She also voices a calm and wise grandmother and is spot-on as Anna’s younger twin brothers, Double and Trouble. A.R.
