Whizziwig, a type of space alien known as an "accidental wish-giver," talks Ben into helping her repair her spacecraft; this only gets them both into trouble and nearly costs Whizziwig her life. Beginning with Ben's youthful voice and Whizziwig's soft, compelling speech, Bennett smoothly transforms her voice into a variety of multi-generational personalities. She easily produces distinct voices for all the characters, including a stern, demanding teacher; a squeaky neighbor; and several other of the story's children. Capturing a full range of emotion, Bennett adds her own enthusiasm to a creatively performed story. P.A.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 99]
