In this latest in the Classic Starts series, narrator Rebecca K. Reynolds zestfully introduces 11-year-old newly orphaned Pollyanna Whittier after her dour Aunt Polly reluctantly offers her a home in Vermont. Listeners will join Pollyanna, who always sees the best in every situation (including her prickly Aunt Polly), as she explores her new town and meets her neighbors. Reynolds deftly presents compassionate servant Nancy, who guides and advises Pollyanna, and the townsfolk who are touched and cheered by the sparkling and optimistic youngster. When Pollyanna is seriously injured after being hit by a car, several events from Aunt Polly's painful past are resolved. It's uplifting to notice the changes in Aunt Polly as her temperament softens. Listeners of all ages will enjoy meeting Pollyanna. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2020]
