Becky never tires of voicing her opinion and pointing out who and what is wrong. If she's not criticizing the magician at a birthday party (he calls it a stick; she insists it's a wand), she's refusing to give the visiting school inspector directions to her school because she's not supposed to talk to strangers. Gervase Phinn, as author and narrator, adds to the fun. Becky confronts difficult Aunt Mildred and her horrible dog, Poochie, school inspector Mr. Scruple, teachers Drear and Groucher, and fussy neighbor Mr. Whinger and his flowers. Many listeners will relate to Becky as she gets herself into and out of trouble in each story. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
