Johnny Heller gives an out-of-this-world performance as the imaginative and intrepid Victor Shmud. Jim Benton, author of the Franny K. Stein and Dear Dumb Diary series, brings more outrageous fun with his new child protagonist, whom Heller entertainingly portrays with vivid animation. Heller combines childlike innocence and silliness with a debonair sophistication to convey Victor's unique blend of confidence and charm, especially when he's sweet-talking his teacher, Mrs. Nozzleburp. A dignified British accent for the alien captain that kidnaps Victor, after confusing him for a strategy expert, is just one of the many humorous voices Heller provides to the melange of oddball characters. This short and fun listening experience is a definite thing to do. M.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2017]
