"You are only young twice" is the theme at the heart of this story. Thanks to a mysterious crone and a jumble of shoes in the cloakroom, three teachers at Lee Godwin's school have the remarkable opportunity to have a second chance at a day of childhood. Of all the classmates, it is Lee who shares in the novelty of that day. Richard Mitchley delights in the escapades of a school day notable for the absence of the headmistress and two teachers and the arrival of three obstreperous students. As the frantic day progresses, Mitchley commands with Mrs. Hemingway, the imposing substitute; bosses and bullies with the new girl, Valerie; and connives with Lee's friend, Peanuts. Mitchley's rich British voice adds authenticity to this British school fantasy. A.R. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
