When Pinky discovers that Rex is away for the day, his disappointment quickly turns to loneliness. None of the usual things seem any fun without Rex. Realizing how much he misses her, Pinky comes up with a solution to ensure that they will never be apart again. It is a wedding to remember. Rex, the bride, looks beautiful in a long white sheet. Pinky, the groom, is dapper wearing his best pink tie. And they are to be married by Pretzel, Pinky's stuffed pig. They've even written their own vows-in the form of a knock-knock joke. Wait a minute! Does this mean they'll have to kiss? In this second book about an inseparable pair of best friends, acclaimed author James Howe and narrator Christina Moore once again bring to life a story of true friendship-and a wedding that is full of childlike innocence and fun.

""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.
