    Something even stranger than normal is happening in the Bagthorpe house. Ever since Uncle Parker won a luxury cruise, they've all gone competition crazy. Only Jack and his dog are staying out of it. Everybody knows that they could never win. So just how does the mixed-up mutt become the most famous dog in Britain?

    Amazon Customer says: "Beautifully, painfully funny"

    Overall

    The Bagthorpe books are classic British humor, and the audio versions are ideal for two reasons: 1. A narrator who fits the material perfectly; 2. When I try to read these books aloud to my kids I have trouble because I keep laughing so hard.

    Angel lives with a loving foster family, but dreams of a land that exists only in the pages of a fantasy novel. Until she meets Gregor, whose magic Talent saves her life and revives lost memories. She follows Gregor to her homeland...a world unlike any she has imagined, where she travels a path of self-discovery that leads directly to her role in an ancient Prophecy...and to the madman who set her fate in motion.

    Story

    A foster child with no memory of her origins learns she's from another magical world. That's always an irresistible premise, and I did get caught up in the story. But the characters' relationships and emotional reactions to each other kept ringing false. Close bonds of trust and affection would seemingly pop up in an instant, while genuine tragedies seemed to only merit an "oh no, what a shame!" I just didn't believe in the characters, and so I found it hard to really care about the book.
