Professional reviews

"One dry summer day early in the twentieth century, 9-year-old Garnet Linden finds a silver thimble near her southwestern Wisconsin home, and amazing things start to happen. The rains finally come, her father finds money to rebuild his decrepit barn, and the list goes on. Those few months become her "magic thimble summer," which the author describes with such wide-eyed wonder that she won the Newbery Medal for it in 1939. Joan Allen's reading is candid and straightforward--like the young people she temporarily and convincingly inhabits. Her strong and affectionate voice combines so perfectly with Enright's finely detailed prose that the listener enters intimately into this loving family chronicle. E.V.
