Children Ages 10+ • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Sam's father has been mysteriously missing for 10 days, and in his search for clues to his disappearance Sam discovers an ancient stone that sends him careening through time on a series of adventures. Holter Graham skillfully employs a wide range of voices to keep the many plot elements sorted out. In addition to the earnest voices of Sam, his aged grandparents, and his extended family, Graham uses diverse accents for a series of time-travel episodes extending from ancient Egypt to France during WWI. A subplot involving Sam's judo tournament brings an entirely new set of voices to narrate the lengthy descriptions of the traditional matches. This story has a stunning cliff-hanger ending and is the first of a series. R.H.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2008]
