Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Man One, June Jo Lee

Children Ages 8+ • 15 mins. • Unabridged • © 2017

Vibrant L.A. will leap into the minds of listeners in this audio homage to Korean-American chef Roy Choi’s path to street food stardom. The accompanying picture book’s illustrations are eye-popping, and Los Angeles-based graffiti artist Man One’s narration has a style all his own, especially his rap delivery of the book’s short cooking poems. Co-author and co-narrator June Jo Lee’s bright voice delivers definitions for young listeners to bring helpful context to the story. Combine all these elements with various rhythmic beats, sounds of the city, and the hustle and bustle of the kitchen, and you could say this audiobook shares a certain awesomeness with Roy’s Awesome Sauce. Listeners are guaranteed to finish with a hankering for some spicy food cooked with love, and sohn maash. E.E.C.
