Grady Jacobs wins the name "Green Thumb" from the jungle natives when he joins a rain forest project in Brazil. Narrator Johnny Heller punches up the humorous dialogue with his boyish reading of Grady's spectacular adventures: This kid foils an evil scientist, swings on vines, shoots blowguns, and even commands the trees, proving to be much smarter than any adult in sight. Of course, Grady sounds a lot more like an 18-year-old than a 13-year-old, but that may be because Thomas has written young adult books up to now, as well as working on TV's "Dawson's Creek." Still, whatever his age, Grady is a fun guy to spend time with. M.C. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
