CAIRO JIM And the Sumptuous Stash of Silenus

by | Read by Geoffrey McSkimming

Children Ages 8+ • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

Sixteenth in the Cairo Jim series, this adventure finds the famous archaeologist and his trusty sidekicks, Brenda the Wonder Camel and the Doris the Macaw, battling the evil ambitions of the greedy Neptune Bone, who has been afflicted by a spell. The King Midas myth figures prominently in this lively narrative, providing both a historical backdrop and a cautionary tale. The performance features multiple sound effects, such as the braying of animals, the screeching of birds, and the blasting of horns, all of which contribute to the production's frenetic quality. Young listeners will find the frivolity, silly humor, and punning amusing, but it might be too over-the-top for family listening in the confines of a car.
