Narrator Cassandra Morris's youthful voice contributes to the lighthearted tone of the first book in a new series. The seven quirky, capable Problim siblings are left alone while their parents are off on an archaeological expedition. Morris handles their individual identities and capabilities as easily as the children deal with the explosion of one home and the move to another, inherited from their grandfather. Can they solve the riddle that leads to treasure and fend off the menace of their greedy neighbor, Desdemona O'pinion? Morris's narration appreciates the author's whimsical inventions such as the construct that the children's gifts relate to their different birthdays and the rhyme that begins "Monday's child is fair of face." Wit comes from Frida's rhymes and Baby Toot's farts, their scents and sounds reflecting the family members' moods. S.W. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2018]
