Narrator Gary Tiedemann brims with delight as he zips young listeners around a bustling Tex-Mex border town, inhaling a feast of local food in Raúl the Third's second Little Lobo adventure. The audio smartly does not attempt to re-create the print version's busy book atmosphere. Rather, like an animated Saturday-morning cartoon, Tiedemann's energetic and precise narration flawlessly embodies the story's Latinx-anthropomorphic cast. Characters like Little Lobo; his dog, Bernabé; and their rooster friend, Kooky Dooky, sound like the exact audio equivalent to their illustrated selves. Tiedemann savors each tasty word from the glossary at the end. Listeners, especially new Spanish learners, will keep coming back to this perfect audio companion for its gusto and goofiness. E.A.N.
