"Fans of Griffin Bing's first adventure, SWINDLE, will be thrilled with this follow-up, and though listeners don't need to have read that story, they won't want to miss it. Here narrator Jonathan Ross has a field day, giving strong performances as Bing and the other members of this motley crew of sixth-graders. Someone has swiped Savannah's monkey, and when the gang discovers her in a fleabag zoo, the bumbling villains come to rue the day they messed with these kids. High jinks ensue, and Ross brings them all off with such spirited conviction that listeners will think there may have been a caper or two in his own childhood. D.G.
