Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Lauren Ezzo enthusiastically narrates Krull’s biographical sketches of famous authors. The short pieces are related thematically by commentary on the writers’ relationships to their pets, after a longer discussion of their lives and works. Given the variety of authors discussed—Beatrix Potter, Ernest Hemingway, Charles Dickens, and more—the title will have wide appeal, leading listeners to adult and children’s books from the nineteenth through the twenty-first centuries…Her energetic and warm delivery of the narrative will have listeners believing that she cares about each writer personally and is proud of their accomplishments.” AudioFile
