Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by L.J. Ganser

Children Ages 6+ • 15 mins. • Unabridged • © 2012

L.J. Ganser animatedly narrates this story about nothing. Zero wants to prove that he’s not a doughnut or a Fruit Loop but a hero. But it’s not until the Roman numerals confront the counting numbers that Zero finally gets his chance to reveal “the power of nothing.” Ganser’s exuberant performance, filled with inflection and energy, brings a sense of old-time radio to a story that teaches about numbers, counting, and self-esteem. Ganser’s clear voice and strong pacing bring out the competition between the numbers, and his inflections mimic vintage celebrities like Mae West and children’s television shows like “Underdog.” Ganser’s exhilarating reading makes this short listening experience appeal to children and adults alike.
