Why, why are grown-ups so insane? That’s exactly the question that Norman, Anna and Emma (the twins), and I, Leonard, try to answer. And with the help of Norman’s new tutor, Balthazar Birdsong (also fairly nuts), we nearly do it, too. No, seriously! Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Norman is a companionable protagonist whose affection for his clueless parents is charming. Time with Mr. B is also well spent—the book is a veritable benefaction for readers’ vocabularies. It’s also easy to love a tutor who declares his mission, “is to get your heads and noses out of your textbooks and back into the clouds where they belong.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Jesse Bernstein’s narration talents are put to good use in this quirky story…His pacing and cadence are perfect for following the story along its wacky and word-filled journey. Bernstein’s narration rockets this book into the imagination.” 


  • “Bernstein’s spot-on narration will help listeners keep the characters straight and breeze through dictionary definitions, and raises the book to a whole new level of hilarity.” 

    School Library Journal

  • “Appealingly quirky and adventurous; a celebration of the power of self-directed learning and thinking outside the box.”
