"Narrator Robin Miles is crisp and pliable of voice--and as upbeat sounding as the five Vanderbeeker children. These skills serve her well as she navigates the topsy-turvy, ever-changing world of the Vanderbeeker family. They may be rescuers, but they sometimes cause problems, too. When Mama's home baking business is threatened, it's the children who come up with many plans to help. Characters include the optimistic and na•ve Hyacinth, the anxious twins, the sometimes impractical brother, and the quavery-voiced elders, who are a part of the extended family. Miles's portrayal of Mama Vanderbeeker is at times heartfelt and at times heartbroken. Miles brings all the characters to life with age-appropriate voices and verve. A.R.
