Narrator Nate Begle does authors Patterson and Grabenstein proud. He infuses their hero, an escaped blue lab rat named Isaiah, with an exuberant, inquisitive, and persistent personality--surely what the authors had in mind. Isaiah explores the human world as he searches for his family, all the while offering insight into humankind and animals. While listeners initially may find Begle's mouse a bit squeaky and artificial, as Isaiah's quest to find his 96 siblings progresses, Begle's register lowers, making him a more convincing mouse. Isaiah's love of words and ability to talk, type, and orate are sure to win over listeners. Equally charming is Hailey, a human Isaiah befriends. Supporting characters have distinctive voices as well--especially the brown non-lab mouse, Mikayla, and the bumbling caretaker of the lab, Mr. Brophy.
