by | Read by Oliver Wyman

Children Ages 8+ • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Twins Emily and Erno Utz go on the run when they realize that an evil breakfast cereal company has been running experiments on them, their foster father, and a host of magical creatures. While Oliver Wyman provides a straightforward delivery of the narrative, he creates a range of accents for the dialogue of this fast-paced, utterly hilarious story. Portraying the children, Wyman reads in high-pitched, even tones, reserving an extra squeaky voice for super genius Emily. Their housekeeper, a gentle giant named Biggs, has a deep, booming voice. Wyman handles the magical creatures with ease, including a leprechaun with an Irish brogue and a rabbit-man with a jittery, slurred voice. Wyman brings this fun-filled adventure to life without letting it go over-the-top. E.N. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2012]
