    Captain Lionel Wafer and his fellow-pirates - Toad, Brace-and-Bit and Winkle, are no ordinary ruffians. Clinging to the belief that life should be simple, free and unplanned they set off in a converted teashop of a ship, renamed The Sinful Sausage, to sail backwards and forwards over the bounding blue. In no time a dastardly plan has formed in Captain Wafer's mind to kidnap the famous inventor, Humbert Cash-Cash, from his sunshine retreat and purloin his inventions - or at the very least pinch his diamond doorknob.

    Captain Wafer says: "A delicious kid's story with something for adults"
    "fantastic fun like all Mahy stories"

    When Delphinium presses the button marked DANGER, bells ring and sirens wail. What a way to celebrate her 10th birthday! But others on the space station are worried by the white blob on their computer screens. Could it signal an invasion? Meanwhile, Jason is enjoying a little fun aboard a skip-ship. But he and Delphinium accidentally start the machine and find themselves hurtling through space, out of control....

    If you could sum up The Greatest Show Off Earth in three words, what would they be?

    Mr 7 and Miss11 loved every moment. Richard Mitchley does a wonderful job as narrator and kept the children enthralled throughout the whole story. Margaret Mahy is such a fun writer that even I enjoyed listening - the consumate childrens author.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Greatest Show Off Earth?

    At the end of the story when the acropila started exploding because of the jokes.


    Which character – as performed by Richard Mitchley – was your favorite?

    The Mangold


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?
