Imogen Church's stellar narration highlights the vivid detail and poetic language of this beautiful contemplation of our cosmos. In just under three hours, author Ella Frances Sanders whimsically explores our universe, considering carbon, stars, and our planet--among a myriad of other things--and how they relate to us. Church takes on the lyrical nature of the narrative with her own melodic charm. Her English accent and resonant voice provide a crystal-clear articulation that relishes words like "constellations," "luminosity," and "glittered imaginings" in descriptions that spark pondering and a sense of wonder. Church's irresistible way with the spoken word compensates somewhat for missing out on the winsome imagery and playful fonts of the illustrated print book. This is a performance that is as out of this world as its subject matter. M.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
