The narrator of the popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, Ramón de Ocampo, applies his hallmark enthusiasm to Marvin Watson’s introduction to middle school in his pork-obsessed town, Butcherville. Listeners will cringe and laugh out loud in equal measure as Marvin is subjected to the horrors of middle school, where he’s befriended only by outcasts and taunted by his cousin, Stevie. At home, he’s relegated to the attic bedroom by his new baby brother. When Marvin teams up with Fatima and Lee for a science presentation, listeners will be breathless from laughter. De Ocampo’s best creations are the giant moths who’ve taken up residence in Marvin’s attic—they watch baseball—and the Shakespeare-quoting spider that is stalking the town. This production is truly a tour de force. M.F.T. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2017]
