The boy ULF is a very loveable character, and the evil Marakai is deliciously sinister.
Marakai's two henchmen are absolutely brought to life by Gerard Doyle.
This second book in the Beastly Business series is every bit as good as the first. We get to return with some of the great characters from the first book, and share in even more adventures of the RSPCB!
Funny, Zombie, Kids
A very cute depiction of a usually terrifying topic - zombies! But when poor Stanley unknowingly unleashes a zombie doll on his elementary school, it's hilariously spook-tacular the way the students react. Just wait til you hear what happens to the kindergarteners. A fun listen, and not scary at all.
It is a great story with believable characters, and a humorous look at Norse mythology.
Odd is a loveable character, and you find yourself rooting for him to succeed.
His voice charcaterizations are spot-on. We thoroughly enjoyed his re-telling.
Even though Odd was crippled, he accomplished great things.
My 10 year old son and I loved this book. It was a great story, intertwining the lives of a simple boy and the greatest Norse gods. And surpirse! The simple wood-cutters son is the true hero!
This book reads like a compilation of Aesops Fables...some short, some long, usually with a lesson at the end.
The reader did an adequate job of changing voices for characters...not the best I've heard, but good.
The book is simply a compilation of tales or fables, many of them universal, not specific to Norse peoples. But it is a great introduction to Norse culture, if you've never heard it before. My son and I listened to this together. He is twelve and most of the stories were a little too young for him.
A mild and humorous story of three friends wanting to make a name for themselves ( and capture the eyes of a few girls along the way) by performing outrageousfeats of daring. Rarely successful, these adventures take the boys to places full of wacky (mis)adventures and some SMELLY situations.
My nine year old son really enjoyed this book. Louis the Laff moves from his old neighborhood to a new stuffy "upper-crust" neighborhood where he doesn't fit in. Soon his parents are turning into the Stepford Parents, wanting him to become the super achiever that his peers are. Louis has his own ideas about that. And his new friend instructs him how to train his parents...
