9780006751243: The Amber Cat

While two friends convalesce from chicken pox, one boy's mother tells them of a summer, long ago, when she was eleven--just their age--offering a story about a girl named Harriet who would mysteriously come and go at the beach. Who was Harriet? An underlying poignancy adds depth to this winning story with its surprise ending.

About the Author:

Hilary McKay won the Guardian Children's Award with her first novel, The Exiles. Her subsequent work has achieved similar recognition - The Exiles at Home won the Smarties Prize and the Dog Friday trilogy was critically acclaimed. A graduate of Botany and Zoology from St Andrews University, Hilary now writes full-time. She lives in Derbyshire with her husband and children.

From AudioFile:

Reader Nigel Lambert, veteran British star of children's audiobooks, seems to find this story delicious. He rolls each character off his tongue with endearing glee and does the narration with equal and effortless aplomb. His children's voices--there are eight or nine, and a few adults, too--are slightly high, sometimes rapid, always well delineated. The story involves the time-traveling ghost of a little girl, but the reader is scarcely aware of that; there's no ghoulish horror here. It is the clean mythos of the 11-year-old that McKay describes so well and Lambert reflects so melodiously. Both are expressive, uncloying, delightful. D.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
