Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Lyle Lovett

Children Ages 8+ • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

As narrator, Lyle Lovett creates a mesmerizing bayou setting with his smooth and fluid reading. He aptly conveys the descriptive and down-to-earth quality of these interwoven stories about two raccoon scouts who maintain peace in their home on the swamp and 12-year-old Chap, who is trying to help his mother make ends meet with their sugar pie shop after the death of Chap’s beloved grandfather. While Lovett’s purposeful pacing reveals elements of the bayou’s quiet mystery, his voice is lively when he lets loose with the rousing sounds of the wildlife, such as the hissing of the snake, the shrieks of feral hogs, and the signature howl of DJ Coyote Jim as he bays greetings to radio listeners.
