Professional reviews

"What does a boy wonder? Take a listen to this story of one imaginative youngster's mind. Before one can even ponder, question, or query, this book peppers the listener with a barrage of questions. Do bees get hives? Is water scared of waterfalls? Do taffy pullers ever push? The good news is that answers abound--and so do more questions. Enunciation is key for the narrator of this book, and Greg Steinbruner speaks with precision and clarity. His pacing is speedy enough to highlight the multiple meanings, rhyme, and alliteration of the text, and he provides occasional pauses for contemplation. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
