Rod Allbright, the half-alien preteen who battled the forces of evil in DIMENSION X, is back in his third intergalactic adventure (published in the U.S. as THE SEARCH FOR SNOUT). This time he travels across the galaxy with his bratty cousin, Elspeth, and alien companions Grakker and Madame Pong, to rescue Rod's father. Coville's story is funny and full of surprises, but performer Vincent Marzello reads the text at a gentle pace in a storybook style more suited to the 5-and-under crowd than to the 8-and-up audience for which this book was written. Further, Marzello is unconvincing as a 12-year-old narrator. S.E.S. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
