Excellent for young listeners

I enjoyed this book thoroughly. Mudshark isn't only cool, he is a genius with unbelievable capabilities and three small sisters that keep him on his toes. But when a parrot challenges his intellect and his coolness, memory and genius is under threat, he must turn detective to keep his status. This situation leads to an interesting and thoroughly enjoyable adventure. I hope this is not the last that we've heard from Mudshark. Tasso Feldman's narration is excellent. However be warned, if you are too old to listen to this book, you might be misled by thinking it is not so cool as I say.
