Joe Barrett brings to life this Second Unlikely Exploit of the McNally siblings. Barrett's even pacing easily carries the listener along as the McNally children attempt to recover Fergal McNally's pickled brain. Tension builds in Barrett's voice as the children venture into the forbidden Fishbone Forest, encountering several eccentric characters. But don't dismay, Barrett brings a smile to the listen with the humor and new vocabulary sprinkled throughout the story. The plot device of the split story is abrupt in audio but is smoothed as much as possible by Barrett's tone and natural pauses. Even Barrett's unidentifiable accent helps convey the odd happenings in the unidentified country of the McNally children. W.V.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 06]
