Reviews

Combine a trio of 12 year olds-Henry, Riley and Reid-with dares and challenging adventures, and the resulting chaos delivers comedy at its best. Each escapade and comical scene builds towards the proverbial "disaster," with a small sample of their antics involving the contents of a dumpster and some methane gas-a high jinx recipe that only Paulsen could create. Podehl personifies tween boys with his fully voiced performance, and Paulsen narrates the introduction. Listeners that pair this title with Jeremy Bender will have a fun fest that gives humor a big lift.
