This Mischievous Mystery has it all: two cute kids, an unidentified "monster," neat parents, and the skills of narrator Lisa Hicks. When Ben and Jenny spot a hairy-legged creature in their garden, they're both fascinated and apprehensive. Hicks's kids are irresistible. Ben is older and bolder while sweet-natured Jenny relies on her brother. Listeners will be amused to hear the pair disguise the creature in their mom's clothing, bring it into the house, and name her "Oop Oop" (like the sound she makes). When their parents play along by telling a well- rendered story, the siblings learn that an orangutan has escaped from the local zoo. The not-too-scary story and the smile in Hicks's voice make this ideal for a very young audience. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2017]
