About This Audible Audiobook

The globe-trotting thief in the red fedora returns! And now, the question isn't where—but who? In the role of Carmen Sandiego, award-winning performer Kyla Garcia reveals, for the very first time, the backstory of the ever-elusive master criminal whose whereabouts captured the imaginations of children everywhere— through educational video games, animated series, and a popular PBS "gameshow" for middle schoolers in the 1990s.

In this novelization based on the new Netflix animated series, you'll discover there's even more to the story. More action, more details, more twists. And you'll hear from Carmen Sandiego herself how the mastermind behind some of the most audacious capers ever conceived became the best thief on the planet. Don’t miss your chance to learn who in the world is…Carmen Sandiego.

Enjoyable Listen. World Building For A New Game?

Having grown up at the right time, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego was a constantly played game on my computer. It was fun. It was educational. It was annoying frustrated that I never caught the thief but only got the stolen artifacts back. Now this fun is back for a new generation with a twist which gives a background and personality to the greatest thief in the world.
I enjoyed this book as an adult looking back on the computer games and Rockapella singing the earworm of a theme song. I can see this as a future platform game, still educational in its focus with geography and history, with "Player" being the person playing the game.
Narration by Kyla Garcia was spot on for the character.. I haven't watched any of the Netflix series yet to see if it is comparable to Gina Rodriguez as the title character. She has a natural flow for this story which is engaging.
This does make me want to go ahead and watch the Netflix series now. Maybe even with my kids.
