Listeners have long delighted in Atinuke's stories of Anna Hibiscus at home in "amazing Africa." Now, they'll delight as Anna Hibiscus for the first time makes a wintertime trip to visit to "Granny Canada." Will she be lonely without all her cousins? Will she come to be friends with Granny's dog? Will she find new friends? And, most of all, will she adjust to all the clothing and activities of winter? Once again, Mutiyat Ade-Salu does storyteller Atinuke proud. She voices Anna's excitement at sledding and holiday lights with speed and high-pitched inflections. In contrast, shes uses drawn-out phrases of doubt when Anna Hibiscus encounters the unknown, such as stories of her grandfather. Ade-Salu shows Granny Canada's compassion with a calm and steady voice as she gently explains new customs and activities. Ade-Salu's gentle African accent adds authenticity to the production.
