Banks's latest installment in this popular series hits the ground running as Omri's parents announce their plans to move the family to a country house they've inherited. The pace slows as Omri, keeper of the secret cupboard, finds a hidden family diary which sheds light on the mysterious cupboard and reveals some dark family secrets. The narrator's emotional reading of the diary's shocking confession justifies Omri's inability to put it down. Banks's performance hits a feverish pitch as Omri realizes the magic he uses to correct the wrongs of the past might have disastrous effects on the present. From start to finish, this is a first-rate mystery/suspense program for juvenile and YA listeners. M.P.T. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 94]
