Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Bahni Turpin

Children Ages 10+ • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Prepare to be charmed! Bahni Turpin is back to narrate this sequel to THE TRUE MEANING OF SMEKDAY. A couple of years after two alien species invaded Earth, Gratuity (Tip) Tucci is now 13, and J.Lo, her Boovish friend, longs to visit New Boovworld and reconcile with his fellow Boov. What follows is a madcap outer-space adventure, a political farce, and an endearing story of friendship. Turpin’s enthusiastic narration is genius. She gives voice to humans, aliens, a parrot, and a robot; handles Rex’s wordplay and the Boov’s muddled English; and creates her own sound effects with apparent ease and flair. Turpin's reading enhances everything funny, smart, clever, silly, and subtle about the storytelling. It’s an absolute listening delight.
