Olive’s family has moved into a magical old house. While her parents are oblivious to the magic that surrounds them, Olive is thoroughly embroiled in it, working to free a friend who is trapped inside a painting. The house’s three guardian cats are reluctant to help, so Olive seeks to take matters into her own hands. But is Olive using magic, or is the magic using Olive? This book is filled with cheerfully wacky dark humor, and narrator Lexy Fridell’s saucy Kewpie doll voice leavens the scary parts. Nasal-voiced boys, indignant British cats, spooky old women, and plucky young Olive fill listeners’ ears and imaginations. This is a fast-paced, delightful audiobook, and youngsters don’t need to have listened to the first one to enjoy it. G.D. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2012]
