by | Read by Steven Pacey

Children Ages 8+ • 2.7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

This hilarious story is far-fetched but an excellent example of looking out for others. Steven Pacey is great as Maggot (the kid) and his bicycle-racing Gran, whom he saves from some exotic killer mushrooms. There are plenty of clever sound effects, compliments of the narrator's distinctive vocal ability. The action is nonstop and also features neat kid-adult relationships, British style. Also, listeners will learn all about the "Royal Spitting Pot"! Lots of fun for kids and feisty adults. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
