Narrator Dani Martineck hilariously voices a multitude of extraterrestrial characters in this Odyssey Honor-winning sci-fi romp. After the destruction of Earth, the surviving humans seek refuge on the planet Choom. Choom's government fears that humans are too violent to live among them, but they allow one family to visit as a test. Humanity's survival depends on them, so the main human character, Lan, tries desperately to fit in with the unwelcoming natives. Martineck imbues Lan with a winning optimism that keeps the tone light and shines in their delivery of the aliens' native tongues. Through screeches, moans, and chitters, as well as various distinct "voice signatures," Martineck gives listeners a vivid sense of what it might feel like to be a stranger in an alien land. S.C.
