Children Ages 6+ • 1.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1989

Lisa Bonet delivers a whirlwind interpretation of this timeless horror story for children. Adapted for a BBC co-production with L.A. Theatre Works in 1992, the tale of suspicions about a substitute teacher is action-packed. Bonet's portrayal of sixth grader Susan is exactly as breathless and flip as any tween would be when worrying about the messy details of friends, the school band, and unmasking an alien imposter. Her other character voices round out the radio-quality performance with the right balance of cartoon and authenticity. The only weaknesses to the listening experience are the jarring bursts of circus music at different points, likely an artifact of broadcasting breaks. A great spooky and suspenseful listen for the whole family. S.T.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2018]
