Aliens are sure they can improve the badly designed human race, and fifth-grader James feels fortunate to be their first subject. Would he prefer wheels? Wings? English actor Glen McCready employs hilarious voices and sound effects for aliens and humans as the pros and cons of superpowers for James are considered. Super speed? Super brains? Each comes with serious perils. One effect is that James's classmates are sure he can get rid of their horrible teacher, Mrs. Sharply. In the end, James comes away with a modest alteration, and the problem of Mrs. Sharply is solved. McCready delivers a zany tale. R.H.H. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
