Audible Editor Reviews

Maggie’s pet cricket Niki is kidnapped by the new kid in town, known simply as "Pirate". With the help of her friends, Maggie decides to do some sleuth work, and sets out in search of her lost pet.

Courting audiences aged four to eight, this short parable covers a remarkable breadth of emotions, touching on matters of love, loss, anger, friendship, and new beginnings. Portraying down-and-out Maggie - living in a van with her parents - Erin Kiley exudes empathy and reassurance, letting children know that we all must confront difficult emotions sometimes. Kiley doesn’t undermine these emotions’ powerful nature, as she imbues Maggie’s character with force and authenticity. Ultimately, Maggie discovers new friendship amid unlikely circumstances, offering children an important message about dealing with emotions constructively.
