Joshua David Stein performs his clever story in an animated voice that is a fine accompaniment to the tinkling of page-turn chimes and realistic sound effects. In addition to entertaining young listeners with animal sounds, Stein teaches children (and adults) all about solitary animals (human and nonhuman) and collective nouns (for example, "a dazzle of zebras"). His playful language weaves through elephants trumpeting, zebras snorting, and panthers purring, among others. With gentleness and congeniality, Stein asks questions about animals who are loners and their human counterparts (aka introverts), asking, for example, whether they're lonely. He answers with equal parts enthusiasm and encouragement. This delightful parade of animal facts, musical words, and sweet lessons on solitary creatures is sure to please any crowd. M.F.
