Description

Read Theodore Taylor's classic bestseller and Lewis Carroll Shelf Award winner The Cay. Phillip is excited when the Germans invade the small island of Curacao. War has always been a game to him, and he's eager to glimpse it firsthand-until the freighter he and his mother are traveling to the United States on is torpedoed. When Phillip comes to, he is on a small raft in the middle of the sea. Besides Stew Cat, his only companion is an old West Indian, Timothy. Phillip remembers his mother's warning about black people: "They are different, and they live differently." But by the time the castaways arrive on a small island, Phillip's head injury has made him blind and dependent on Timothy.

Professional reviews

"High adventure, survival on a small cay in the Caribbean, and friendship between a boy and a man are the stuff of Theodore Taylor's enduring tale. When their ship is torpedoed by a German submarine while leaving Curaao, young Philip, a cat, and Timothy, a West Indian man, find their lives converging as they seek rescue. Michael Boatman is a fabulous narrator. His narration expresses both the urgency of learning a new way of life and the joy of new friendship. The lilting calypso intonation Boatman gives to Timothy--and his uniquely outrageous "wisdom"--transports the listener. An interview with the author provides insight into the story and completes the recording. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
