Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“For a child with cancer, feeling like a hero can be a healing prospect. Through the Anything Can Be Project, children with cancer are given individual stories that reflect their dreams for heroic adventure—with each story being written, on order, by a bestselling author. Here, twenty-one of those stories are given narrations as diverse as the narrators who deliver them. Each narrator provides a delivery crafted to enhance the featured hero’s exploits: A mermaid accepts legs to bring her friends to safety, a youngster musters the courage to rescue her stuffed animal friends from a railroad track, and a would-be debutante fortuitously finds a note to a pirate crew. Listeners are also urged to take a look at the print book, which contains powerful photographs of real-life kids in the costumes of their heroes.” AudioFile
“The…heroic adventures and profiles of the children who inspired them add up to a project that’s inspiring and moving on multiple levels.” Publishers Weekly
“An inspiring anthology of well-told short stories.” School Library Journal
“The heroes of these tales are almost two dozen kids who are bravely battling cancer.” Booklist
“There’s quality here…the worthy purpose shines through.” Kirkus Reviews
