Children Ages 6+ • 2.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1982

Picture a young person who drives his teacher wild, who is always up to something, who knows how to manipulate his friends, and who is deep-down lovable in spite of it all. Meet Zesty, who leads the way with his trusty sidekicks on adventures that range from a school insurance scheme to solving a dead chicken mystery. Richard Mitchley's energy keeps pace with the characters. He speeds up and slows down to mimic excitement and moments of exasperation. His characterizations are superb, especially the no-nonsense teacher, Ms. Quick, the alternately hysterical and outraged female classmates, and the ever cool Zesty.
