Riassunto: FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Describes the adventures of a twelve-year-old Bronx boy who ventured out on homemade snowshoes to help his neighbors during the Blizzard of 1888.
Dall'audiolibro: Heat up a mug of hot chocolate and throw a log on the fire before listening to this true story from the famous Blizzard of '88. As 12-year-old Milton Daub braves the 1888 snowstorm in the Bronx, the sound of icy, howling winds and cracking trees enhances the experience. The narrator maintains the tension throughout with a tight, slightly hushed reading that seems to slip free from the simplicity of the accompanying easy-reader text. The pacing, slow and resolute as Milton moves determinedly on his mission, rushes forward when the situation becomes dire. The excitement, danger and heroism of Milton's day of rescue and delivery in the storm will cause young listeners to wish for their own blizzards. T.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
