Graham Halstead narrates this story of a family's trip to attend the decidedly quirky funeral of Papa Kwirk. Rion Kwirk considers himself a regular kid in a weird family. Halstead differentiates his thoughts and utterances with contrasting voices--his thoughts are more humorously sarcastic. When Rion meets an attractive girl, however, Halstead delivers his spoken words with nervous bumbling. Mom's voice is nondescript, Mr. Kwirk's endearingly nerdy, and Rion's sisters' suit their personalities--one dramatic, one precise. Aunt Gertie is memorable for her New York accent and matter-of-fact tone as she hosts the family for the funeral visit and directs them in a bizarre scavenger hunt. The voices of Rion and his dad gain gravity and dimension as they find more than what they seek. L.T. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2019]
