Paul Chequer's high energy and dramatics are the perfect way to express the character of Harvey, who's bright but totally bored in school. Adolescent energy has to go somewhere, and Chequer keeps up the mad pace as Harvey and his mate, George, challenge each other to betting on probabilities to spice up their school hours. How many times will math teacher Wobblebottom scratch under his arms before the bell rings, or substitute Twitchy twitch in one lesson? Before he knows it, Harvey's got the whole school involved in betting and finds himself running a gambling syndicate. Chequer's dramatic reading aptly presents Harvey's stress when everything starts to fall apart. S.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
