Bruce Dawe’s sly, sparkling addition to the AUSSIE BITES series, The Chewing Gum Kid, tells the story of Simon Bright, a brand-new fifth grader with a lot of problems on his mind, including horrible bullies and a cranky sister who just won’t stop bugging him. But when Simon discovers a weird piece of gum with apparently unusual powers, it seems like things might be going his way for a change....
Australian voice actor Stig Wemyss performs this engaging audiobook, contributing skilled vocal characterization and strong, consistent pacing. Wemyss builds tension with great skill and apparent ease, guiding listeners gleefully to this audiobook’s triumphant conclusion.
