Andy Crane clearly enjoys narrating these short humorous incidents in the life of Jeremy James, and readers are sure to be entertained by his playful use of accent, tone, and expression. The silliness will elicit giggles from young listeners, but there's also much fun for adults who find children's misuse of language cute. Jeremy James wonders whether he will get "balded" like his father. He wonders why his friend's father goes to "sweaterland" (Switzerland). The British setting and perspective are colorful and refreshing. Some readers might not appreciate the "kids say the darndest things" tone, while others will find the humor just to their taste. E.S.
