My three kids and I were captivated from beginning to end. The story sparked some good discussions about the treatment of women and Indians, the perseverance of the explorers, and the expansion of the U.S. west of the Mississippi. The narrator was exceptional.

Foraging in fields and on rubbish heaps, and sharing food with his friend Crane-man, used to be enough to fill Tree-ear's days. But now all Tree-ear wants to do is watch master potter Min at work.

This is absolutely one of my favorite Audible books so far. Everything is excellent- plot, characters, themes, narration. My children and I were captivated from beginning to end.

With Father in Washington and Cuffy away visiting a sick cousin, almost anything might happen to the Melendys left behind at the Four-Story Mistake. In the Melendy family, adventures are inevitable: Mr. Titus and the catfish; the villainy of the DeLacey brothers; Rush's composition of Opus Three; Mona's first rhubarb pie and all the canning; Randy's arrowhead; the auction and fair for the Red Cross.

My children and I have listened to this book at least three times, and we have every intention of keeping it a regular in our audio library. Pamela Dillman is superb; she breathes life into each character. The author has a way with words that enchants even my youngest child. I thoroughly appreciate Enright's knack for describing the thoughts and feelings of each character with such authenticity. Sometimes I forget that the Melendy children aren't real! Each of the Melendy books is a treasure, but this one is my favorite.
