Scribbleboy is a local legend whose work brightens the drab walls of Bailey's new neighborhood. Will the graphic artwork endure, or will a new Scribbleboy emerge to keep the myth alive? With an over-the-top cast of characters, a fast-paced plot, and an energetic performance by Russell Boulter, this romp of a story will engage listeners in the question of how Bailey and his friends will solve the mystery of Scribbleboy. Even with the minor distractions of exaggerated stuttering and lisping, Boulter brings Bailey, Ziggy, and Ma GlamRock, as well as Levy and his rap group, to life. At times silly, at times poignant, the story offers themes of friendship, loss, and creativity that will engage listeners. L.D.H. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 07/ JAN 08]
