When Oliver is sent to spend the summer with distant relatives, he knows they're eccentric, but he has no idea to what extent. This highly entertaining novel by British children's writer Alan Durant is a clever blend of Roald Dahl and "The Munsters," read with finesse by Ann Beach. Although not well known in the States, Durant's more than twenty juvenile novels--with themes of fantasy, horror, and mystery, served up with ample humor--are popular in the U.K. Veteran actress Beach reads with delightful incredulity as she narrates this tale of friendly vampires, ghosts, mad scientists and a were-badger.
