Eccentric is a fine word for the Finn family. Overanxious Mom is a knitter, Dad is an inventor, 6-year-old Bill is a prodigy, and Ned is the ever-forgetful middle child. When Ned enters an interschool competition for the specific purpose of winning a PlayStation, how will he ever be victorious? And what will he enter? Mix a few of Dad's infamous fish crisps with a potion acquired from the local bully, and with the help of genius Bill, Ned has a project. Glen McCready is an enthusiastic narrator. He enunciates and elongates names, facts, letters, and events, heightening the suspense. McCready is intimidating as the school bully and captures Ned's outward hesitancy while radiating his hope for an opportunity to shine. A.R. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
