I'm very excited to have received my first review from AudioFile Magazine for my read of IF YOU EVER WANT TO BRING AN ALLIGATOR TO SCHOOL, DON'T! by Elise Parsley, directed by Robin Miles.
"Young Magnolia has made a BIG mistake, and narrator Megan Tusing is with her every regretful step of the way! Magnolia admits that bringing an alligator to school for show-and-tell was a terrible idea and launches into a second-person narration as to why. Tusing brings a childlike voice to each story element--the alligator's hunger during math, its annoying gum-smacking, and its paper airplane making during art class. She also captures the incredulous voice of Magnolia's teacher in just the right tone. Tusing's leisurely pace leaves time for young readers to inspect the illustrations in the accompanying book. Jaunty music and classroom sound effects complete the production. A.R. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2017]"
