Audible Editor Reviews

Versatile Aussie actor Alan King dishes out four diverse and delectable short tales. These stories cover an eclectic mix of genres, but all offer action-packed adventure, sure to capture the ears of eight- to twelve-year-olds. In "The Lighthouse Secret", two schoolmates discover some unusual experiments taking place at Cameron’s Cove. Following, "The Giant Scrub Python" trails two boys on their mission to end an illegal animal trading operation. Next up is "Uncorked", Archimede Fusillo’s humorous account of bullying and friendship. The proceedings close with "Jack and the Skyhook" - a sci-fi send up of "Jack and the Beanstalk" - featuring a space cadet who trades his cow for a few beans. King is rangy, animated, and emotive as he serves up snappy dialogue exchanges and quick-clipped action sequences.
