James Howe is the author of more than ninety books for young readers, including the modern classic Bunnicula and its highly popular sequels. In 2001, Howe published The Misfits, the story of four outcast seventh-graders who try to end name-calling in their school. The Misfits is now widely read and studied in middle schools throughout the country, and was the inspiration for the national movement known as No Name-Calling Week (NoNameCallingWeek.org), an event observed by thousands of middle and elementary schools annually. There are three companion novels to The Misfits: Totally Joe (2005), Addie on the Inside (2011), and Also Known as Elvis (2014). Howe’s many other books for children from preschool through teens frequently deal with the acceptance of difference and being true to oneself. Visit him online at JamesHowe.com.From AudioFile:
Moustro Provolone knows talent when he hears it and makes fine choices, or so he thinks, for the school chorus. Neither chosen for the chorus nor willing to be in the band or audience, Dolores feels hurt, angry, and sorry for herself until she takes control of the situation by writing an important letter. Even the Moustro comes to understand that "all God's children got a place in the chorus." Bright and spirited mouse voices, entertaining musical solos, and perfect sound effects from the school music room round out this fine recording. While listening, savor the humor of Amy Walrod's illustrations. A.R. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
