Rex, who knows she is a terrible speller, is worried that she will embarrass herself in today's spelling bee. Pinky, on the other hand, is a great speller. He might even be the second grade champion again. On the way to school Pinky tries to help Rex become more confident. Although Rex is eliminated early in the competition, it is Pinky's confidence that is tested. Will Anthony-the new boy in school, and a spelling ace-dethrone Pinky? Or will the three cartons of milk and two glasses of juice Pinky had for lunch fluster him far more than a misspelled word? With his Pinky and Rex series, author James Howe has won over parents and young readers alike with tales of youthful friendship. When children listen to one of these magical books, they can't wait to hear the rest. Christina Moore's energetic narration will have listeners playing the tape over and over again.

""Easy Readers," books written for children just beginning to read, are among the most difficult books to record successfully. But leave it to seasoned reader Christina Moore to find a way! Moore overcomes the inherent textual limitations of short sentences, simple constructions and repetitive vocabulary to produce a collection of excellent audiobooks that will appeal equally to the emergent reader following along in a book and to the sibling or parent listening for pleasure. Moore's pacing and expression enhance and enliven the simple texts. Subtle vocal differentiation allows the listener to distinguish between best friends Pinky and Rex, while the exaggerated, often whiny, voice of Pinky's younger sister offers a fine counterpoint. High on emotion, the tone and emphasis in all dialogue are appropriate and authentic. Every library serving young children should clear a space for the entire Pinky and Rex audiobook collection! T.B.
