by | Read by Stig Wemyss

Children Ages 10+ • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

These stories perfectly capture the lives and spirits of adolescent boys. From corny to poignant to terrifying, Stig Wemyss conveys the tone of each story. The production's sound effects add to Wemyss's ability to capture every emotion a kid could ever have, especially when embarrassing things happen. The best story here involves a kid who gets a toilet seat stuck on his head. (The lid keeps closing on him quite unceremoniously.) Wemyss is perfect in his portrayals of the kid insulting everyone, including old ladies and bikers with beer bellies. Surprisingly, a parrot forces him to mend his ways. Wemyss makes listeners believe Jennings's stories are possible, to the delight of listeners young and old. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
