Publisher's Summary

Primrose Squarp simply knows her parents did not perish at sea during a terrible storm, despite what the other residents of Coal Harbour believe. For all practical purposes, Primrose is an orphan, and there's no great clamoring of prospective adopters. After realizing the impracticality of continuing to pay Miss Perfidy (a mothball-scented elderly lady) an hourly wage to baby-sit her, the town council places her with Uncle Jack, who reluctantly takes her in. Primrose does warm up to him, but her true sanctuary is a local restaurant called The Girl on the Red Swing, where everything, including lasagna, is served on a waffle, and where the proprietor, Miss Bowzer, offers a willing ear.

Through a mixture of eccentric humor and probing philosophy, author Polly Horvath makes Primrose's search for peace and understanding a most memorable one. Everything on a Waffle was a 2002 Newbery Medal Honor Book.

    Story
    "Absolutely amazing"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Everything on a Waffle to be better than the print version?

    yes definitely....there is nothing more better than closing your eyes and imagining the purely heart touching story 😊


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Everything on a Waffle?

    one of my favourites was when the little girl denies to believe her parents are dead


    What does Kathleen McInerney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Her beautiful expression was the one thing you would of defiantly miss....


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes...I would get very annoyed if someone disturbed me....it's great to listen to it in all one sitting

    Any additional comments?

    I have listen to this book several times. The combination of prose and narration are delightful. The author artfully portrays the beauty of regular people and the beauty of faith.

    Story
    "Hard to follow"
    What did you like best about Everything on a Waffle? What did you like least?

    Well the book in real life has like 15 chapters not 4 so say I needed to listen to just one chapter I would take me like 15 mins to find my spot. And it was also a little bit shorter.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kathleen McInerney?

    I would not have she was very good.


    Could you see Everything on a Waffle being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No but if it was I would se Elizabeth Banks as Ms.Honeycut. For Primrose and the others I do not know.

    "A okay story"

    The story started off sad at first then it got a more unrealistic and not so interesting anymore and was too short
