“Jennifer Jiles provides a dynamic narration, infusing the interesting and vibrant characters with verve and keeping listeners attention.” –July, 2015 School Library Journal
“As a number of seeds blow in the autumn wind, one tiny seed floats behind the rest. “Will it be able to keep up with the others? And where are they all going?” Narrator Jennifer Jiles establishes both a tone of wonder and a sense of character. Throughout the book, Eric Carle’s collages and story cover a lot of territory–multiple habitats, four seasons, the life cycle of seeds, and the threats of a hungry bird, a “big, fat weed,” and a careless human. Jiles’s fluid narration balances science and story, the book’s concepts and its character. The tiny seed endures and by book’s end is “a big and beautiful flower” that releases its own seeds, completing a circle easily understood by young children. – S.W. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2016]
“I’ve just finished listening to THE LOST TRACK OF TIME, and I just have to gush over what an amazing job you did — your character voices were uniformly superb and spot-on, and you pulled me into the story to the point where I didn’t want it to end! Kudos to you; we clearly need to do more projects so you can tell me more stories!” —Paul Gagne, Director of Production, Weston Woods & Scholastic Audiobooks
“One minute Penelope is trapped in a strict daily schedule recited by her mother each morning in a chipper voice; the next she falls through her itinerary into the Realm of Possibility, where the overlord, Chronos, has forbidden idle time. There she encounters many colorful characters whom narrator Jennifer Jiles voices with exuberant whimsy. Penelope and her new friend, Dill, set off to find the Great Moodler, the only one who can defeat Chronos. Jiles gives the Wild Bores a monotone stream of words with which to bore visitors to death. Dill’s enthusiasm for the infinite uses of mushrooms is hysterical. Especially memorable is Jiles’s portrayal of the Cuckoo Bird, whose dialogue is peppered with cuckoo sounds.” —M.F.T. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine
