You would think that getting struck by lightning would be a terrible thing, but for Kahuna it was magical! Narrator, Alan Philip Ormond, was perfect for this book. HIs voice was very mysterious and exciting. His narration made me feel like I was actually there with Kahuna at one of his awesome shows! I loved his voice and look forward to hearing more from him. I think children will absolutely love this suspenseful book filled with so many unbelievable acts of magic.

Little Will from Oklahoma travels to Africa and falls in love with the culture, the animals, and the rainforest. The narrator brings this story of Africa to life. She has incredible talent as a voice artist. It is full of excitement and adventure for children as they go on the journey with young Will in Africa. This book is very exotic and educational.

A GREAT STORYTELLER!

This book is my favorite out of all of Ms. Moore's children's books because there are so many animals to meet and learn about. I loved the way Ms. Moore has named all of the animals so appropriately. You read their names and you just see what the animal is like. Children will meet ducks, a wolf, a dog, cats, rats, mice, snakes, possum, raccoon, a turtle, a frog, a skunk, and owls. What an enjoyable and charming way for children to learn about animal life in the country. I thought this was a beautiful book. The narrator did an outstanding job and her infectious enthusiasm brings you right into the story. This story is full of excitement and adventure. Even though I am an adult, I was thrilled by Ms. Moore's tale.

This is a tender children's story about three little Yorkies that I fell in love with. The author, LaVonna Moore, is an incredibly creative and original voice in children's literature. The narrator's voice was wonderful and perfect for this lively pet story. Ms. Moore has a way of creating such an atmosphere that you feel like you are part of the story yourself.

I had never heard of a Great Pyrenees before Angel. They are extraordinary animals and are very large. They tend to be timid until they get to know you and trust you. This is a wonderful tale of the transformation of Angel from a timid and frightened animal to a loving and thoroughly domesticated member of the family. She is a huge and wonderful companion. This is beautifully written. Ms. Moore is a shining light. I can't wait to hear more of her work. I have become an avid fan of Ms. Moore.

This is a story about a cockatiel named Anna who was saved from a bullying parrot named Blue. The parrot had ripped out all of Anna's tail feathers. Anna goes to live with a new owner who nurses her back to health and Anna blossoms. Anna becomes a playful, alert and happy bird. She loves to play with her owner's earrings and perch on her head. She has two friends named Ricky and Lucy, two little canaries. I thought this was an adorable children's book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was such a sweet story.

This was a spine-tingling exploration of the unexplained and mysterious events. This book was scary to me. Ms. Moore is a new and very exciting writer. Her characters come to life and jump right off the pages and grab you! I can't wait to order the second book in the series. The chapter on Miracle and Near-Death Experiences was heart-warming and life-affirming. This was my favorite chapter of the book.
