Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Phil Gigante

Children Ages 10+ • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Twenty well-known children’s authors (including M.T. Anderson, Katherine Paterson, Jon Scieszka, and Kate DiCamillo) collaborate on a fantastical serial tale. Narrator Phil Gigante is equal to the task. As the authors pass the story on chapter by chapter, 11-year-old twins Joe and Nancy thwart evil aliens and put together a top-secret robot—the Exquisite Corpse—while searching for their long-lost parents. Gigante speeds and slows his voice as each author changes the story’s direction, tempo, and tone. No new character—from the evil narcoleptic clown, Boppo, to the lilting misfortune-teller, Ms. Hunch—goes without a distinctive voice. Youngsters will enjoy each improbable adventure. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2011]
