Zwoosh! delivers heart and fun
Very different, almost apples and oranges, due to the picturebook nature of the source material. That said, the audiobook of the story worked surprisingly well without pictures because of the warm narration, space age/fun soundtrack, and cute bits of sound F/X mixed in... these all combined to PAINT pictures for the ears.
THE MOON MEN! And the Martians, too. They each had distinct sounds that gave them personalities even though they weren't really speaking English at all.
She narrates like a loving adult would to a very loved child, adding in nuances of humor or wonder that keeps the listener arrested until the end of the story.
This clever, original storybook is imaginative, educational, fantastical, magical and other worldly. I loved every bit of it. I’ve already enjoyed it several times with children and they enjoy discovering all the hidden surprises as the story takes us through our solar system in unexpected ways. I especially love all the personal touches of the child's relationship to her parents and daily life and special places - unlike a lot of canned storybooks that talk down to kids, this one has a fresh plot that is full of heart.
This audiobook was provided free in exchange for an honest review. Opinions are my own.
A fantastical ride with heartwarming charm.
It's an imaginative story told with warmth, vibrancy and infectious joy. The writing is vivid and easy to imagine. It takes you into this child's world immediately. I would definitely play it for and recommend it to the children in my life. I would actually listen to it for myself as a sort of escape back to my best childhood memories.
The facts about planets and moons were weaved into the story in a way that were exciting and memorable.
She brings a depth and warmth that you can't get otherwise, like listening to a loving mother reading to her child. She sounds like she's enjoying the story and it translates to the listener through the inflections and joyful quality. You can somehow hear her smiling.
I loved the little details about the child's real world that, to me, gives him the life and freedom to have such a wonderful imagination.
This is a special book. The story paints a picture of a very loved child.
