Reviews for Piper Reed Gets a Job


AudioFile Reviews 2010 January
With thoughts of a clubhouse dancing in her head, 10-year-old Piper Reed, Navy brat and Gypsy Club ringleader, bites off more than she can chew--almost. As her father suggests, earning the money for the clubhouse is the way to go. The price tag is large, and her friends have few ideas, so it's Piper who masterminds the undertaking. Emily Janice Card embraces the role of Holt's indomitable character. Her youthful voice sounds authentic and soon involves the listener in the world of this party planner, artist, and babysitter extraordinaire. Supporting characters have their own personalities. Card is especially engaging as almost-three-year-old Brady and author Sam, who negotiates with her illustrator, Piper. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
