"For the second time, narrator Christopher Gebauer animates the character Waylon, a fourth grader who is sensitive and "science-y." The sequel begins soon after the first audiobook ends. Waylon is struggling to save "Dumpster Eddy," the stray dog he's come to love. To prevent Eddy from being sent to a distant shelter in just 10 days, Waylon enlists the help of his classmate, Baxter, who is known for getting into trouble. As Waylon's perception of Baxter changes from juvenile delinquent to collaborator, Gebauer projects Waylon's growing affection for his friend. Gebauer smoothly weaves Waylon's recitations of scientific facts into the narrative, adding dimension to his character. Quick pacing, suspenseful conflict, and gentle humor make this story a good choice for family listening. S.W. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
