January LaVoy's narration gives this audiobook a lighthearted quality appropriate to its predictably unrealistic adventure plot. Book 2 in the Unicorn Rescue Society series starts the day after THE CREATURE OF THE PINES ends. Elliot and his new friend, Uchenna, are whisked away by Professor Fauna to the Basque Country, where they meet fellow Society member Mixtel Mendizabal. They work together to rescue a dragon that has been kidnapped by the greedy Schmoke brothers. Fauna's over-the-top accent makes him seem ridiculous, which works for this silly story, but the Spanish accents for the adult Society members are less assured. Happily, LaVoy's distinct voices make it easy to distinguish the boy and girl protagonists. S.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
