9780141303437: The Touchstone

'Anything you want to know, you hold the stone, ask me, and I will give you the answer'. Douglas is not the sort of boy to panic when something out of the ordinary happens. But, when he meets a native of the planet Vangar whose arm has dropped off and needs his help, and who is being hunted by the Guardians of the Federation, well, even Douglas finds things a bit of a strain.

From AudioFile:

Kai is an alien on a mission to liberate her planet. When she's injured, she contacts 12-year-old Earthling Douglas Patterson (a boy known for his calm in desperate situations). Kai asks Douglas to shelter her from the Guardians of the Federation and gives him a special green touchstone that allows him great powers. Richard Mitchley's performance turns this well-written adventure into a delicious romp through Douglas's usually uneventful life. As Gedrus, a walking encyclopedia to everything in the cosmos, Mitchley is appropriately smug. Further, he makes Douglas and his friends seem like real kids who learn that sometimes asking the right question is more important than getting the answer. Mitchley's intonations and exceptional characterizations add credibility to a series of hilarious and outrageous situations.
