The entertainment value of the already engaging Gizmo series is immeasurably enhanced by its getting the audio treatment. Comedic actor Francis Greenslade performs Come Back Gizmo, the third book in Paul Jennings' funny and endearing four-part series, with the help of numerous wacky sound effects and musical accompaniments worthy of an old-fashioned radio drama.
Greenslade, however, would be hard-pressed not to do justice to the work of Paul Jennings, for the Australian author has sold almost 7 million books and has been voted the favorite author of his continent's children over 40 times precisely because his books contain perpetually funny, genuine, and appealing voices.
Jimmy sniffs the dog's legs.
The dog sniffs Jimmy's bottom.
Jimmy sniffs... aaargh.
Horrible, horrible, horrible.
It's a dog?s life for Jimmy when the Gizmo gets really gross.
A third Gizmo yarn from Australia's master of madness.
