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.

    "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.

    "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

    "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.

    Story
    "It was great for my classroom"
    What did you love best about Walk Two Moons?

    Great classroom book


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the narrator of the story. I did this as a class book and my students really liked it. The part where the mother talks about her past was my favorite part.


    What about Hope Davis’s performance did you like?

    Her voice was perfect for the story. She was a bit country in her dialect and that went well with her story telling.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I listened to this every weekday for about 30 minutes. I had two classes with this book so I listened to it twice a day.

    "Unexpected storyline"
    What made the experience of listening to Walk Two Moons the most enjoyable?

    Listening with my daughter. She is part of the battle of the books her school does. This was one of many she needs to read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Humorous but with a powerful message. Great story for young girls.

    "Outstanding!!"

    My daughter is reading this in school, so I thought I'd listen to it so I could talk to her about it. The narration is really great, and the story is outstanding. My daughter has always said Sharon Creech is her favorite author, and now I can see why.
