Marc Cashman's portrayal of this adventure completely embodies this offbeat story. Twelve-year-old Lily discovers that her unknowing father works for Larry, an evil genius determined to take over the world with an army of stilt-walking whales. Lily and her adventuresome friends are the only thing standing in the way. Cashman offers the bombastic voice and tension-inducing pauses a listener might expect from old-time radio. The advertisements sprinkled throughout the story for other books relating the adventures of Lily and her friends beautifully add to this illusion. The radio show element and Cashman's exquisite rendition of this kooky story perfectly suit the audio format. W.V.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
