Description

Critically acclaimed author and artist Kevin Henkes has earned an impressive collection of accolades for his work, including a Newbery Honor and a Caldecott Medal. In Junonia, Alice Rice is returning to the beach cottage where she always spends her birthdays. Her friends and family will be there, and she's certain a big party is planned. But most importantly, she hopes this will finally be the year she finds the most precious prize any shell collector could ever want-the beautiful and incredibly rare junonia.

Professional reviews

"Stina Nielsen's narration complements this touching story of 9-year-old Alice's return to Sanibel Island for her annual birthday vacation. There she finds that things are not always as they have been in the past. Nielsen's even cadence captures the gentle tone of the story, which is part coming-of-age and part nature journal. Nielsen demonstrates an excellent use of pacing; she speeds up or slows down her voice at appropriate times to portray Alice's skepticism and Mallory's eagerness. The listener can also hear the tenderness in the parents' voices. Nielsen provides subtle shifts in inflection to indicate who is speaking and easily distinguishes the narrator's voice from those of the other characters. J.K.R.
