Publisher's Summary

Dear Listeners,

If this were a normal description for a normal audiobook, I would tell you that this story is fantastic! Gripping! (According to their blurbs, all books are fantastic and gripping.) You'd meet the brave young heroes, Cass and Max Ernest*. And you'd hear about how a mysterious box of vials, the symphony of smells, sends them on the trail of a magician who has vanished under strange (and Stinky) circumstances.

If this were a normal audiobook, I would brag about the hair-raising adventures that follow - about the brain-twisting riddles Cass and Max Ernest solve and the nefarious villains they face. But, sadly, I can't tell you about any of those things: they might make you want to listen to the book.

You see, not only is the name of this book secret, the story is, too. For it concerns a secret - a big secret -that has been tormenting people like you for over...oh no! Did I just mention the Secret? Then it's too late.

I'm afraid nothing will stop you now. Listen to the book if you must. But, please, tell no one."

With apologies,

Pseud. Bosch

    "Where are books 2 and 4?"

    This is the first book in P.B.'s Secret series. Only two in the series, this one and the third one, are on audio, which is a shame. The narration for this one is, in a word, perfect. I wish this narrator had done book 3 (This book is not good for you), but he didn't. The narrator's rendition of the Bergamo brothers is hilarious. You will love this.

    My son LOVES this book! he has listened to this book multiple times and has never tired of it.
    he read the book alongside and enjoys the mystery and closeness of cass and max earnest. the story is exceptionally well paced and written. we look forward to the narrator's next project of if you're reading this its too late.
    a quality recording with inflections and emotions.

    "Loved it!"

    We listened to this on a car ride and loved it!! I have a 7 year old boy and an 11 year old boy and they were absolutely enthralled in the imaginative story. Not a peep from them throughout the car ride--we hated to have to take any breaks in the story. Quality of the audiobook was great. Narrator was pleasant. The kids have made me promise to get the next story

    "Books 1, 3, 4, and 5, but NO BOOK #2???"
    Any additional comments?

    Audible has books 1, 3, 4, and 5 in this series, but no book 2. This makes no sense. At all.

    Story
    "MAKES MY 9 YEAR OLD LOVE TO READ!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    My 9 year old and I really enjoyed this book. We loved the way the narrator brings life to the story. We looked forward to our drive to and from school everyday and sometimes we'd get home and sit in the car and continue listening. We are now reading the second book. My son is looking forward to listening to book 3, since book 2 isn't available on audible.

    "AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Name of This Book Is Secret to be better than the print version?

    I think that this is as good as the book, but is is SO much more convenient to listen to the book instead.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the different personalities of the characters. MAX EARNEST IS HILARIOUS!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the scene when Cass and Max-Earnest find their gifts.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not particuarly, but I liked how her mother acted towards Cass.


    Any additional comments?

    WHERE IS BOOK TWO???????? seriously, you have 1,3,4, and 5, but no two!

    Story
    "No AudioBook 2!!! Why????"

    I loved this whole series except the last book, but would like to know why there is NO AUDIOBOOK 2. ("If your reading this its too late"). Loved the narration for this series, write more books using these narrators.

    Thanks

    Story
    "My Daughter Loved this Book"

    I haven't listened to this book, but my daughter has, several times. She really enjoyed it and I could hear her laughing out loud again and again while listening. Indeed, she liked this book so much that she was on pins and needles waiting for the release of the next book in this series.

    Story
    "Funny book for kids with great narration"
    If you could sum up The Name of This Book Is Secret in three words, what would they be?

    Funny. Clever. Kid-appeal.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Max Ernest who had never had a friend before.


    What does David Pittu bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His narration was one of the best aspects from an adult perspective, and conveyed the humor well.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book - certainly not a painful listen from a parent perspective - but there wasn't as much cross over appeal (to both parent and child) as there are with some of the other titles we've enjoyed together. If you are buying it for a child to listen to alone, then no reservations.
