Children Ages 8+ • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

When George Kidney, a plumber of questionable skill, and his daughter, Olivia, arrive at their newest New York apartment building, they're met with a water-filled foyer, complete with a floating boat. Listeners know they're in for some eccentric yachting. As Olivia sets out to explore, she encounters her former compatriots from this world and the spirit world, as well as new acquaintances, equally zany. Tara Sands is a youthful and heartfelt Olivia--feisty and stubborn as a skateboarder, sad as she reminisces about her family's past, and plucky as she schemes to solve her latest mystery. Sands's accents for supporting characters are outstanding--whether precocious student, shoe-shopper, salsa dancer, or window-washer, she does it all!
