One listen to Cashman's delightful work here, and it's obvious that he relishes his role as narrator of this laugh-out-loud sequel to Anderson's Whales on Stilts . Lily and her friends, Jasper and Katie—both of whom happen to be stars of their own series of middle school adventure books—are trying to enjoy a well deserved vacation at the Moose Tongue Lodge and Resort. However, they find that several other children's book heroes are also staying at the resort. Then, before you can say "Jupiter's Moons!" the young heroes' simple R&R turns into a full-fledged mystery, complete with kidnappings, deadly snakes, narrow escapes and the theft of a priceless necklace. Anderson fills his book with oddball characters and inspired, rapid-fire dialogue, and Cashman matches him beat for outlandish beat. He leaps back and forth between characters with an energy and commitment that is infectious in its enthusiasm. This fine combination of author and material translates into an audio adventure that will tickle funny bones of all ages. Ages 10-up. (June)
