Gates weaves a clever story around two young brothers' tales about imaginary creatures and people---or are they? Accomplished actor Daniel Hill realistically presents each young character and one long suffering mother. He also produces entertaining "sound effects" such as birds, internal dialogues, and reading a graffiti warning. Gates quite ingeniously parallels gang membership, monsters, and the various fears of kids. What begins as a most entertaining children's story turns into an exciting and worthwhile but never preachy lesson. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
