Professional reviews

"Even listeners unfamiliar with the original will get caught up in this sequel to EVERYTHING ON A WAFFLE. Narrator Kathleen McInerney gives the residents of Coal Harbor voices as distinct as their personalities, including Primrose's enigmatic Uncle Jack; her mentor, Kate Bowzer; and Ked, the new kid in town whom Primrose hopes will become the best friend she's longed for. Bright, energetic Primrose holds the story together as she attempts to make a match between Jack and Kate and to stop the logging of one of the town's mountains. McInerney conveys Primrose's enthusiasm as well as her confusion when things don't go as planned. Funny, wise, and utterly charming. A.F. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
