Publisher's Summary

Nine-year-old Allen Brewster has a fantastic idea that might even win the silver trophy at the science fair: human photosynthesis. He has several obstacles to overcome, but Allen persists in his mission by using the scientific method and finally comes up with a concoction that turns him into a human plant. He turns green, craves sunlight and water instead of food, and sprouts baby roots if he stands in mud too long. But then Allen is deemed a threat to national security, and his project is suddenly top secret.

Critic Reviews

"To B.D. Wong's credit, he narrates each of Gardiner's stories in a unique manner....For Top Secret, Wong playfully creates personas for Allen Brewster, his archetypal science teacher, his nemesis, and each supporting character." (AudioFile)

Exactly as I remembered

I read this as a fourth grader many, many years ago. I remembered the premise of it all these years later and set forth to find the book. It’s as enjoyable as I remembered. B. D. Wong did a magnificent job narrating this story. I would recommend this audiobook for children to listen to. Maybe they’ll become excited in science and make new discoveries that will better our world.
