Candice Moll transforms herself into 11-year-old Cassie Anderson, a peacock detective, in the way skilled narrators can do. Her delivery is rapid, the sentences pouring over listeners. Cassie is hired to help find missing peacocks in the neighborhood. Moll makes the most of both the mystery and the humor laced throughout the story. Listeners will appreciate the ironic observations told in a lively engaging style as the chapters fly by. Some may find this pace faster than that of the average audiobook, but speed is essential to this story because it helps convey the precociousness and vitality of the plucky heroine. Told in a broad Australian accent, this is a story to be enjoyed at full volume. M.R. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2020]
