What sort of madman would unleash an army of stilt-walking, laser-beaming, thoroughly angry whales upon the world? Who cares! All that matters is that his dastardly plan be foiled. Lucky for Lily Gefelty, her two best friends are the intrepid stars of their own middle-grade series novels: Jasper Dash (better know as the Boy Technonaut) and Katie Mulligan (beloved by millions as the heroine of the Horror Hollow series). It's going to take all their smarts to stop this insane, inane plot from succeeding.

M. T. ANDERSON is the author of The Game of Sunken Places, Burger Wuss, Thirsty, and Feed, which was a finalist for the National Book Award, a Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor Book and the winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Young Adult Fiction. He lives in Boston, Massachusetts.
Marc Cashman's portrayal of this adventure completely embodies this offbeat story. Twelve-year-old Lily discovers that her unknowing father works for Larry, an evil genius determined to take over the world with an army of stilt-walking whales. Lily and her adventuresome friends are the only thing standing in the way. Cashman offers the bombastic voice and tension-inducing pauses a listener might expect from old-time radio. The advertisements sprinkled throughout the story for other books relating the adventures of Lily and her friends beautifully add to this illusion. The radio show element and Cashman's exquisite rendition of this kooky story perfectly suit the audio format. W.V.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
