One might think that the meaning of the word "nemesis" is far beyond a young person. Not so in Julia Bertagna's zany escapade featuring a goat, a lost ice cream truck imbued with magical powers that date back to the time of the Incas, and the two families that claim ownership. Along the way, more than one character receives the fate he or she deserves. Sophie Aldred's energy is hard to beat. Her enthusiasm for the eccentric story abounds, topped only by her characterization of the ancient and incorrigible Pa Periwinkle and the flabbergasted and imperious Mrs. Snark. Aldred's lively tempo is in good keeping with the fun. Listen in as potions are concocted, and the fizzbomb sherbet explodes. A.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
