War of the World Records

(The Fantastic Family Whipple, Bk. 2). 10 CDs. 11 hrs. Recorded Books. 2015. $108.75. ISBN 9781470382360. Playaway, digital download.
Gr 4–7—The Whipple family holds the most world records in the world, a record that is being threatened by the Goldwin family. Arthur Whipple is trying to earn his first world record, but first he must work together with Ruby Goldwin to defeat a pair of devious clowns who are out to destroy the World Record Championship. The two encounter every form of adventure possible, including murder and kidnapping. Narrator Steven Crossley does a fine job of voicing the family Whipple. However, the story itself is cumbersome and the overcomplicated plot is as clear as mud. Listeners will lose focus as the story goes on and on for 11 hours.
VERDICT Even the most avid reader/listener will more than likely lose interest in this audiobook before reaching the end.
