This collection of three short chapter books by British author Jacqueline Wilson captures common childhood dilemmas. In the first two, Mark Spark grapples with a school fundraiser and his fear of the dark. In the third, Rosie deals with her exasperating little sister Angela's obsession with a television character. Kim Hicks reads with an expressive, lively voice that makes the Briticisms clear--even to the most American of listeners. Mark Spark's squeaky voice speaks to his hyperactive nature, and Angela's firm and insistent voice rings true, as well. Wilson's solid writing and Hicks's enthusiastic narration make an excellent combination. A.F. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
