In this delightful audiobook for middle-grade listeners, narrator Caitlin Kelly captures the essence of five homeless children (the two oldest are 11) who live on a tropical island in their car. She gives each child a distinct voice and personality, even baby Penny. Their quest is to find a real house that they can call their own. Along the way are some major obstacles: earthquakes, carnivorous plants, and a strange scientist whose dastardly scheme they foil. The exuberance that Kelly breathes into these characters makes for a fun story despite the numerous problems the children encounter. This will be a good listen for kids who love humor and adventure in their stories. E.E.S © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2017]
