Four loosely related kids share different combinations of absent mothers and fathers as they quite capably raise themselves on the beach of a desert island. Narrator Caitlin Kelly enthusiastically recounts their adventures and misadventures as they try to find a house to replace the too small car they’ve been living in. Kim, Kimo, Peppa, and Toby each are given unique voices that mirror their personalities. Kelly’s delivery is full of energy and expert pacing, adding nuance to the humor and giving the listener plenty of reasons to cheer for these quick-witted, resilient kids. The PDF file of a map and illustrations enhances the listening experience, letting listeners fully enter the world of the amazing Fitzgerald-Trout family.
