While I’m painting up a storm for my upcoming show in June, I’m listening to Johnny Heller read Carole Nelson Douglas‘ Cat in Zebra Zoot Suit. This could be Midnight Louie, Temple’s furry detective partner.
I haven’t read many books where animals speak, some think it’s gimmicky but Johnny Heller as Midnight Louie is fantastic. Carole Nelson Douglas’ comic word choice is delightful.
I love Johnny Heller’s voice. He read, or shall I say performed, Tod Goldberg’s Gangsterland. Gansterland was my first audiobook this year. It’s one of the best books I’ve ever read or listened to.
Last year I listened to more than thirty audio books. Johnny Heller has a fantastic voice. Marrying his narration with these two books is a win-win.
