Australian actress Melissa Chambers transports listeners "down under" in Case Four of Allie's Ghost Hunters. Twelve-year-old Allie is hoping to see ghosts during her family's weekend trip to the Jenolan Caves Ghost Tour. Unfortunately, the promising holiday is disrupted by the arrival of Allie's long-absent father, who is eager to be more involved in her life. While secondary characters are not so distinctive or vibrant, Chambers's portrayal of Allie as excited and hopeful is spot-on. She delivers this lighthearted, fast-paced story without neglecting Allie's growing frustration with her quarrelsome parents. Music is used to separate chapters and as a reminder to switch discs, which is a bit disruptive to the overall listening experience. For listeners who enjoy puzzling out a mildly scary ghost story.
