Description

One of 12-year-old Rosie's favorite places is Granny Torrelli's kitchen, with its wonderful smell of soups and pastas. Rosie especially loves taking her best friend Bailey, the boy next door, to listen to Granny's stories. But the two friends have a fight. Through her grandmother's gentle advice, Rosie patches up her friendship with Bailey. Soon everyone is enjoying Granny's homemade Italian dinner. Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech delivers a tale of true friendship and the love of family. Donna Murphy's warm narration is the perfect match for this endearing audiobook.

Professional reviews

""Tutto va bene," says Granny Torrelli, and all is well for Rosie and her neighborhood friends, but not without angst and a deeper appreciation of the vicissitudes of friendship. Creech is masterful as she weaves the parallel lives of Rosie and her grandmother into a warm kitchen fabric with all the smells, companionship, and healing powers of the cooking experience. Each of Rosie's acquaintances passes through the kitchen to help and add a distinct flavor. Donna Murphy takes Creech's pacing and conversation and creates something more. She sparkles in her characterizations: Granny Torrelli exudes spunk and wisdom; Rosie personifies impetuousness and eventual understanding. Murphy's Italian inflection and storytelling delight the ear. This is a listening treasure. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
