Clever in style and delivery, this is the story of Jake, who is growing up on an island resort that is for adults only (in the most innocent sense). His parents own the hotel, and they make Jake hide from the guests, so they think there are no children about. The more he tries to help his parents, the more trouble he finds. His humorous antics and insights are made even better by Gleitzman's own pace and timing. His Australian accent also adds to the down-under humor. A bit of the supernatural is added to a heartwarming story, making it an enjoyable listen for children and adults alike. D.L.M. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
