Narrator Dion Graham conveys the dreamy quality of Milo’s imaginings, along with a weighty message, in his captivating delivery of this thoughtful children’s story, Milo Imagines the World. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss Graham’s skill and evident fun in bringing this picture book adaptation to life. Milo imagines and sketches the stories of passengers he sees on the subway, but soon realizes the conclusions he’s drawn based on appearances alone may have been wrong. Graham’s voice is large but has a gentle robustness that immerses listeners in Milo’s thoughts. He turns this meaningful story into a heartfelt listening experience.
