Can body parts be lie detectors? Thomas discovers he is a doubter, one of the few children who truly can detect when people are telling lies. Using this talent, Thomas becomes a game show celebrity and the one who restores harmony in his own family. Gleitzman's intimacy with his characters comes across in the nuances of his narration. As Thomas, Gleitzman can garner sympathy as schoolmates ostracize him, anticipation as he faces the cameras, and admiration as he maintains respect for his parents. Gleitzman perfects the annoying sister, the dejected parent, the bully-turned-buddy, and the crotchety husband. Join Thomas for a zany adventure that takes listeners from Australia to the Catacombs of Paris. A.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
