Pinky and Rex love to play "monkey in the middle" with Pinky's little sister. But every time they do, their ball goes into Mrs. Morgan's yard. And every time it does, she flies out the door and screams at them. She even tries to hit Rex with a broom! Now the kids want to get even with the Mean Old Witch of Elm Street. But when Pinky creeps up onto Mrs. Morgan's front porch, he sees her sitting alone in a dark house and decides that revenge is not such a good idea after all. James Howe's popular series is loved by children across the nation. When children listen to one of these magical books, they can't wait to hear the rest. Christina Moore's dazzling narration will make children of all ages jump when Mrs. Morgan charges out of the house.

""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.
