Umansky introduces us to this hilarious cast of misfits led by Big Ma Manky. The crew of bandits represents many nationalities and personality types who all live up to their funny and appropriate names. Narrator Nigel Lambert gives the kooky characters just the right emphasis but restrains himself from going too far. The hero, Nev Niceguy, prevails after the requisite trials, which include his encounters with a very feisty girl. Subtle lessons accompany this fun romp. S.G.B.
