Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Jon Scieszka again proves his expertise in humor and hooking boys on reading by choosing 10 hysterical stories, many of them written by the funniest children's book writers in the field. The audio adds top names in narration. Their timing and tones make each story, whether slapstick or slightly disgusting, even stronger. The range of hilarity is wide. There's Jack Gantos's disgusting tale of inventive wart removal, David Yoo's slightly spooky story of a boy who goes toe to claw with a homicidal turkey, and the dark humor of Kate DiCamillo and Jon Scieszka's story of the correspondence between a jaded writer and an A-seeking student. A great family listen, this audio is guaranteed to get giggles and guffaws. S.W. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine
  • AudioFile Magazine This seventh volume of Scieszka's Guys Read series has a robust bunch of heavy-hitting authors, a diverse group of voices narrating, and stories with a little something for everyone. These pieces have a great mix of humor and heart, and the narrators work to bring out hope, mischief, and mystery to keep listeners wanting more. These pieces are vastly different stylistically, but they work beautifully as a collection, and the use of multiple narrators with varying styles and characterizations highlights the strengths of each piece while providing lively and engaging adventures for listeners. A quality listen for all ages and genders, ideal for fans of short stories and unique characters. K.S.B. � AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine
