Dean Pitchford is a surprisingly good reader. When I noticed that he was going to be the narrator on this talking book, I was worried - authors aren't always good readers. But he's pretty good. Sometimes his dialects are a bit over-the-top (I really wasn't a fan of his JJ), but overall, he was fun to listen to.

Captain Nobody is the story of Newt Newman, a boy stuck in the shadow of his older brother who is the star player of the local high school football team. From the playful illustration on the cover, one would expecta lighthearted comedy, and there is that here. But a major element in this book is a tragic story of Newt's brother's injury, and Newt's struggle with that terrible event. Really well read, really well written, really worth the read.
