This latest in Cross's Demon Headmaster series finds the power-hungry headmaster tampering with DNA, trying to create a super race that has high intelligence but no emotion, which to him only causes problems. The intrepid gang of kids must race to beat him at his game and convince the adults of his dastardly scheme. Narrator Bennett's considerable experience working in sound studios makes her an excellent choice for the task of distinguishing among the many young voices, the wily headmaster and his robot-like creation (Bennett's best voice). There are lots of laughs, fun, even a tear or two as well as an excellent moral to be found in this thought-provoking, very modern story. S.G.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 99]
