Adventure, suspense, an Irish setting, and a first-class narrator make this a production that's hard to turn off. The story starts when Conor takes his little brother and two vacationing children out on his family's boat. When a storm hits and the four are marooned on a nearby island, they're swept into the world of Lady Agnes--a woman obsessed with finding the long-lost Great Yellow Ox, a relic made of solid gold. Narrator Sean Barrett creates wonderful voices and accents for all the characters. Listeners will be kept guessing until the very end of this production, which is a fine choice for adventure fans and family listening. A.F.
