Beans's father, an absent-minded inventor called "Gadgetman," is known for his crazy gizmos, exploding experiments, and spy kits. When he accidentally invents an "induction oscillator" with the power to empty ATM machines, the fun begins. Syan Blake's lively reading of this humorous mystery is fun and expressive. Listeners will love the energy she brings to the story as Gadgetman gets abducted and Bean and her friends attempt to solve the crime. As the three girls search for clues and cope with suspicious characters, Blake keeps listeners immersed in the action and wondering what will happen next. Her engaging rendition is fast paced and will have listeners wanting their own spy kits. M.H.N. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
