It is 2027 and World Peace Day! In honor of the occasion, everything on the Web is free. Sarah and her friends visit Gulliverzone (a site based on Gulliver’s Travels) for a not-to-be forgotten adventure and terrifying experience. Baxter’s subject couldn’t be more timely, but the performance is confusing because the main character is a young girl, and unfortunately, the narrator is male. However, Julian Rhind-Tutt’s presentation of the boys in the story is outstanding; his action scenes are also fantastic. Despite the one discrepancy, the title should be popular because of its unique and appealing subject matter. Most young listeners should be enthralled.
