Sid Fleischman can spin a yarn with the best of them. And this one's a gem. Jake's dad disappears, leaving his son with nothing except Jim Ugly, a mongrel-wolf Jake never even liked. Soon assorted scoundrels are following Jake and Jim Ugly, hoping they'll lead them to his dad and a cache of missing diamonds. McShane reads with zest, capturing urgency, mystery and humor. He switches voices skillfully, bringing each character to life. Kids will be captivated by this exceptional reading. P.B.J.
