New York Times bestselling author Wendy Mass has received an array of awards for her children's fiction, including the ALA Schneider Family Book Award. Pi in the Sky stars Joss, the seventh son of the Supreme Overlord of the Universe, whose job is to deliver magical pies--ones that happen to hold the secrets of the cosmos. But when planet Earth suddenly disappears, Joss must figure out a way to bring it back--even if it means enlisting the help of an outspoken Earth girl named Annika.

"Mark TuretskyÕs energetic performance propels the listener out of this world and into The Realms. There Joss, the unassuming seventh son of the Supreme Overlord, must set aside his Òpi-deliveringÓ chore to save earth. TuretskyÕs dynamic range of voices inhabits the characters, notably one of the overlordÕs snooty employees and one of JossÕs extraordinary brothers. JossÕs keen determination to return a stranded plucky 12-year-old girl to earth and bring back his friend Kal is compelling and portrayed with consistent liveliness. Turetsky deftly masters pacing and adds what sounds like lag time to his rendition of Kal and JossÕs broken sentences as they communicate from parallel worlds. The author narrates the closing part of the production, in which she shares the inspiration for this imaginative story. M.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
