Masterpiece by Elise Broach--Audiobook Excerpt

Listen to this audiobook excerpt from Elise Broach's children's book Masterpiece. Marvin lives with his family under the kitchen sink in the Pompadays' apartment. He is very much a beetle. James Pompaday lives with his family in New York City. He is very much an eleven-year-old boy. After James gets a pen-and-ink set for his birthday, Marvin surprises him by creating an elaborate miniature drawing.
