Andy Shane and the Barn Sale Mystery
"[Editor's Note: The following is a combined review of ANDY SHANE IS NOT IN LOVE and ANDY SHANE AND THE BARN SALE MYSTERY]--Rachel Lillis narrates two Andy Shane adventures with zest. Andy is a boy who makes lists when he has a problem to solve. Here he finds missing binoculars and works himself out of a pickle when his constant companion, Dolores, is bent out of shape by the arrival of a new girl in their class. Lillis gives individualization to Andy's character and to Andy's friends and grandmother. Andy is thoughtful, Dolores and Lark are enthusiastic, and Granny Webb is full of wisdom and humor. Lillis's dialogue, complete with varied voices, comes across as realistic and childlike. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
