Publisher's Summary

"How about a story? Spin us a yarn."
Instantly, Phoebe Winterbottom came to mind.
"I could tell you an extensively strange story," I warned. "Oh, good!" Gram said. "Delicious!"
And that is how I happened to tell them about Phoebe, her disappearing mother, and the lunatic.

    "Such a great story wonderfully told"

    I read this book years ago and loved it. Normally I wouldn't dare risk tainting the memory of such a great book by getting the audio as well, but I had read reviews that said Hope Davis was a wonderful narrator. She is. I laughed and cried listening to her tell this tale in the same spots that I laughed and cried when I read it myself.

    Some Newbery Award winning books are just not my cup of tea being that I am about 25 years older than the book's intended audience. However, for some books it doesn't matter what age you are. They just are great stories told well. Walk Two Moons is just a fantastic book about a young girl's journey. Highly recommended.

    "Great book"

    I read this book to my kids years ago on a long car ride to a ski trip. I listened to it the other day on another long car ride. What a great book! I loved it even more the second time. Hope Davis does a wonderful job of reading and voicing. A definite recommendation!

    "Wonderfully Told"

    The main character in Walk Too Moons is original and surprising, as is the storytelling. Well-deserving of its Newberry Medal and a wonderful read by actress Hope Davis

    Story
    "Assigned Reading for School"

    My son was assigned this book for school, starting this week. I went ahead and listened beforehand and found myself sucked into a book that neither of us would normally listen to. He normally listens to books like Harry Potter, the Percy Jackson series, and books by Jonathan Stroud. I usually listen to science fiction, historical fiction and non-fiction. While the main character in this book learns many life lessons (her friend Phoebe reminds me of a friend I had when I was a girl), I found myself nodding my head about the manner that she learns them. It's a very interesting way in which the author is able to grasp the social influences in this age group. The scenes with the English teacher made me smile when the kids completely missed the point of the exercise, though I admit that the teacher went a bit overboard and was not careful in choosing the passages he read. I won't give away the end, but as an adult I could see it coming after only the first quarter of the book. I don't think my son will see it coming.

    Story
    "No chapter markers...:("
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would do chapter by chapter markers. I use this for my students at school, and it's hard to use, since I don't have book marks by the chapter. (It says "Chapter 2, but it's really NOT "Chapter 2," "Chapter 3," etc.)


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's a wonderful tale about families that is timeless.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Sometimes. I would prefer it to be faster here and there.


    Could you see Walk Two Moons being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes! I would love to see it as a movie! Not sure who to pick for stars.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of my favorite middle-grade level books. It's perfect for kids who are trying to make sense of the world and understand the role their families play in helping them do this.

    "Touching story for readers of any age"

    Beautiful, lyrical story that touches on some heavy topics. I actually had to double check the recommended age group because the story felt mature despite its young main characters. Parents may want to listen/read before letting their kids enjoy this one. Although I would have been okay reading this story at age 9, I'm sure plenty of kids (including my own) probably aren't quite ready for it. That being said, I enjoyed it immensely. Listening to one narrator perform all voices irks me a bit, probably because I don't usually listen to fiction, but this one didn't bother me too much.

    "Stories within Stories"

    Each story told is funny and touching. There's so much mystery and a story for all ages.
