Ms. Wiz is a "paranormal operative" who befriends the Kids of St. Barnabas School. When she and Shelly Kelly win a trip to Hollywood, they meet their favorite stars, Mel, Courtney, Brad, and Leonardo, warts and all. Suzy Aitchison's presentation is great as the reserved Brits and the twangy Americans. Ms. Wiz's story is to be made into a movie about her; her husband, Mr. Arnold; Baby William; and pet rat, Herbert. Not only does Aitchison present believable, amusing vocal differences, she also adds a keen sense of character differentiation as she transitions from person to person. The humor is intended for children but has a distinct appeal for adults, as well. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
