Angel, not fond of people at the best of times and having an identity crisis, is about to meet Zola – a talkative young American girl who makes herself at home in Angel’s tower in a tiny village high in the Swiss Alps.
‘This Zola is a lot bossy,’ Angel thinks.
But out of their bickering an unexpected friendship forms, and their teamwork is about to benefit the entire village...A funny and life-affirming novel from Carnegie Medal-winning author Sharon Creech.
What about Laurel Lefkow’s performance did you like?
Laurel Lefkow's performance was very funny with the right accents and spirit.
Any additional comments?
My 8 year old daughter and I listened to "The unfinished Angel" almost in one sitting (bedtime beckons.) And we thoroughly enjoyed the humor of the book and its performance.
What if an Angel does not know who she is, what she is supposed to do and what she is supposed to look like? Although she is rather old(as she reminded us indignantly in her broken English-Italian accented narration) her child like discovery and questions and observation of the people around her. And Zola being the colourful child that she is, could see and talk to the Angel and often asks her poignant questions that children often do?
We could listen to the story again and again and asks ourselves different questions each time.
Very entertaining, can be poignant but very light hearted.
