Narrator Ramon de Ocampo fills this story with cartoonish voices and an astounding array of fart noises that are sure to thrill middle-grade fans of crude humor. Oddonis, Adonis's plain twin brother, is optimistic on his first day at Olympus Middle School, but the schoolyard cruelty of his god classmates squashes his hopes. With a band of misfit friends, he challenges his brother for the office of class president. De Ocampo finds earnest emotional beats to make the characters lovable, even the revolting Gaseous and Germes. While de Ocampo does his best to guide the listener through tricky audio adaptation elements, such as the audibly similar twins' names, there are holes in the narrative that clearly rely on illustrations. However, young listeners will likely be laughing too hard to notice. S.T.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2019]
