Children Ages 8+ • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1989

Author Bruce Coville is among the wonderful performers in this full-cast production. Sixth-grader Susan is shocked when she realizes that her beloved teacher has been abducted by an alien who is now posing as her class's substitute teacher. Narrator Nancy O'Connor brings youthful energy to Susan, a smart girl who prefers fading into the background to battling aliens. But Susan reluctantly builds an alliance and, ultimately, friendship with fellow student and sci-fi fan Peter, ably voiced by Evan Burmeister. Peter's calm braininess provides a subdued contrast to Susan's rising panic when she discovers that she and her classmates will be the alien's next targets for abduction. With humor and suspense in equal measure, this is an enjoyable family listen. A.F. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2016]
