Genie's summer is full of surprises. The first is that he and his big brother, Ernie, are leaving Brooklyn for the very first time to spend the summer with their grandparents all the way in Virginia - in the COUNTRY! The second surprise comes when Genie figures out that their grandfather is blind. Thunderstruck, and being a curious kid, Genie peppers Grandpop with questions about how he covers it so well (besides wearing way cool Ray-Bans).

This book has so many lovely elements. It has humor and sweetness, brotherly love, sadnesses both small and large, minor and deep. My ten year old son and I listened to it in the car and we will need to listen again, as there is much more that we could discuss. We laughed until we were breathless and I cried more than once. It is fantastic!

One of the best-known stories in American culture, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has stirred the imagination of young and old alike for over 100 years. Best Actress nominee Anne Hathaway ( Rachel Getting Married, Alice In Wonderland), fresh from filming one of this year’s most anticipated films, The Dark Knight Rises, lends her voice to this uniquely American fairy tale.

It was lovely to listen to this with my 10 yr old son. We had fun discussing the differences between the book and the movie. Anne Hathaway was fabulous! She was a delight to hear.
