Alistair Fury lives up to his name as he plots revenge on his family when he must wait on them hand and foot because he brought the flu bug home. Rix creates fun word pictures with the colorful word choices that he uses to convey the sometimes nutty and risqué story. Despite the plot and counterplot that the Fury family hatch against each other, their love prevails. Narrator Robert Llewellyn is hilarious as each scheming family member and the Irish relatives who turn up for Uncle Crawford's wake. Kids--and adults--will get laughs on many different levels as they listen to this quirky story. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
