by | Read by James T. Murtha

Children Ages 8+ • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

James Murtha dynamically narrates this horror story set in the Adirondacks. Listeners meet Frederick, a clever 11-year-old with autism who is desperately trying to win back his former best friend, Cindy, a Bigfoot skeptic. Fred gamely delivers a school report on Bigfoot while enduring his classmates' mockery. Effective sound effects add to the well-rendered atmosphere during the annual Bigfoot Festival. Murtha excels at the gruff, no-nonsense voice of the sheriff, Fred's Grandpa, and manages deft changes in mood that range from entertaining to terrifying. When bully Luke is kidnapped, Fred and Cindy join the search, much to the sheriff's irritation. Fascinating Bigfoot lore adds to the story as the action ratchets up. A touching look at friendship and forgiveness with a satisfying conclusion is enriched by Murtha's exceptional narration. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2024]
