by | Read by William Dufris

Children Ages 8+ • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

Close your eyes and turn your imagination on to high power. If you cross your basic sixth-grade class (mostly good kids, one impulsive one, one bad one, an inept principal) with an entourage of multi-colored and multi-shaped aliens on the first sanctioned trade mission to Earth, you are in the middle of Bruce Coville's newest science fiction work. Keep your eyes closed and fantasize the voices for these characters. William Dufris does a masterful job of creating them all, making this pleasurable, humorous, and convincing listening. It is an "unabridged production," rather than an "unabridged recording." Enjoy the extravaganza. In addition to the pleasure, one hopes the listener will ponder the possible relationship of Earth beings to other beings of the universe.
