Narrator Robert Llewellyn's high-spirited delivery of poor Alistair Fury as he tries, yet again, to break into film is a hoot. Just as Alistair nears the big time, his interfering mother decides that the family must go on a caravan (camping) trip. Of course, Granny must join the campers despite suffering severe constipation when away from home. Llewellyn's characters are always delightful, with Granny's accent, vocabulary, and bathroom problems making her the standout. Rix presents unusual family dynamics, which should fascinate young listeners. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
