Minerva McFearless knows her family is different, but "monsterminators"? Katherine Kellgren rollicks through Zappa's text, giving life to 11-year-old Minerva, her brother, Max, and the zany cast of monsters seeking to end the McFearless era of monster-domination once and for all. Imagine a 1940s detective radio show complete with a full range of sound effects meeting a 1960s "Addams Family" sitcom told by a current-day ramped-up adolescent. Kellgren's narration is energetic and infectious, the voice of a kid with an amazing story to tell. Zappa's original theme song brings the story to a close, and its catchy tune sticks in your mind like a slug of monster glue. D.J.P. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
