Walking and Listening to "Greenglass House"

Milford, Kate. Greenglass House. 10 cd's. 11 hours, 43 minutes. Recorded Books. 2014, $108.75. ISBN 978-1-4906-6437-8.

Milo is beyond excited for Winter Break. Not only does he have a break from school, but it is also the only time of year that Greenglass House, the inn his parents run, is unoccupied with guests.  Unfortunately, things quickly change when guest after guest after guest begin to arrive.  While  Greenglass House doesn't typically receive the most upright and honest of guests, Milo and his family are quite shocked when some items belonging to the guests begin to go missing. Not sure what has brought this eclectic group of guests to the hotel and who is responsible for the stolen items, Milo and Meddy (the chef's daughter) begin an Odd Trails role playing game to figure it all out. 

I quite enjoyed listening to this book, hearing the story unfold and the tying of the different characters and why they were at the house together.  While I was initially confused with the explanation of all the rules and roles in the Odd Trails game Meddy was explaining to Milo, it all became clear once the game began. Chris Henry Coffey does a nice job narrating this book. While the differentiation of character voices was minimal, I was never confused as to who was speaking and the story moved along at a nice pace.

Favorite Chapter Title: The Moonlighter's Knack

Summer is here and the beaches are crowded. This person was able to stake out their spot early one morning.
