Yet another great tale!

These Penny Parker tales are just plain fabulous. Highly entertaining and action-packed adventures abound in this particular one. Wow, what a lot of excitement.

good series


(3.5 stars)

I like the reader's accents but could not stand the staccato way he talked. He sounded like Captain Kirk. He...talked...like...this... Argghhhh please re-record this book.


(3 stars)

I liked the story but the reading was very distracting, odd pauses and a staccato cadence was hard to get over .

love it and the others

Exciting tale!! For all ages


(5 stars)

At this point Ive read all of the books that I could find (Project Gutenberg ) and listened to the audios. While there is no better reader anywhere for Penny than Cheryl Adam , I must give credit to M. Pierard for his obvious love of the material and his enthusiasm. I found myself really loving his characters and even the odd pauses. I now look forward to listening to him reading Flash Evans, the only Wirt I havent heard yet

Well written forr pre-teens
