Children Ages 10+ • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Jimbo’s sister, Becky, tells him she’s overheard that he’s in trouble at school. Just to be sure, because Becky likes to torture him, he and best pal Charlie put a listening device in the teacher’s room. What they hear starts an adventure that takes them light-years away from school, Becky, parents, and even Earth itself. Julian Rhind-Tutt’s youthful, energetic voice takes listeners on a wild and woolly adventure. As the boys experience intergalactic travel and ultimately save Earth from annihilation, Rhind-Tutt portrays everyone from snarky teachers to alien-spider-robot-things and a big sister who brains aliens. Mark Haddon (THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME) wrote BOOM! (published as GRIDZBI SPUDVETCH) in 1992. This reissue has been classily updated, and with Rhind-Tutt narrating, it’s a good fit for today’s listeners. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2010]
