Liam's just a kid, but he looks so mature that he's continually mistaken for an adult. When he poses as a dad to compete for a chance to go to outer space, he's suddenly flooded with insights on the benefits and drawbacks of being a grown-up. Narrator Kirby Heyborne enlivens the abundant humor in Boyce's work while offering many poignant moments as Liam gains insight into what it means to be a dad. Heyborne enhances this story with his expressive English voice and his knack for distinguishing abundant characters. His light touches deftly individualize characters without their becoming cartoonish. This production is funny, engaging, and touching. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2010]
