"Myra Lucretia TaylorOs soothing voice evokes the timelessness and expansiveness of the ocean as she brings CoombsOs pums of tide pools and sand, jellyfish and sharks to life. Her pacing is purposeful. By never rushing and even stretching out the syllables of the reflective pums on water, sand, and tide, Taylor mimics the back and forth of an ocean swell. When a pum is more playfulNsuch as the one about a beachfront property sale by a local crab salesmanNTaylor perks up her voice and takes on a hawking persona. With the return to shore of a weathered piece of driftwood telling stories of his travels, Taylor narrates with the bravado of an old salt spinning dockside yarns. Where the print book is available, listeners will delight in listening while poring over the watercolor illustrations by Meilo So. A.R. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
