Who better than John McDonough to narrate Rylant's MOTOR MOUSE? He brings his rich, welcoming voice to three stories about a Mouse and his cohorts. Picture Motor Mouse in his little red car as he makes deliveries and rewards himself with a trip to the bakery on Cake Friday. Or picture him befriending the cabbie who drives him down "memory lane." Lastly, picture Motor Mouse attempting to share popcorn at the Saturday matinee with his brother, Valentino. McDonough's pacing lets the richness of Rylant's writing shine. Shifting seamlessly from voice to voice, he personalizes and develops each character--for example, the cabbie who sounds clipped and impatient mellows as he too enjoys his memories. There's also a hesitant hedgehog who suggests that Motor Mouse might want to try pie. Let's hope for more audiobooks about Motor Mouse! A.R.
