A fantastic compilation containing the first six Zac Power books: Poison Island, Deep Waters, Mind Games, Frozen Fear, Tomb of Doom, and Night Raid. Join Zac Power as he battles to save the world... and tidy his room!
My 7 yr old has been reading the Zac Power books before bedtime, so I jumped on the chance to get the audiobooks as well. He was thrilled.
The narrator is Australian and reads the whole thing in a state of perpetual excitement.
Each case needs to be solved in 24 hrs - a fact that doesn't come through very strongly when you are reading the books. However, as an audio track, having the time read at you constantly does give a sense of urgency. It does appear that Zac doesn't need a great deal of sleep though .... or is that an adult just being a bit grumpy?

I have to admit i enjoyed these stories as much as the kids. Zac is pretty cool and the Aussie narrator is perfect.Zac is a super spy kid who gets these James Bond style missions that he has to get done before dinner or chores at home. He uses gadgets and fights super villains, but its always appropriate for kids of all ages.Thank you Zac for a trouble free,easy road trip with two kids for four days. You legend!!

My 7 year old boy loves these stories and listens to the over and over. The performance is excellent.
These little stories are very brief and pretty predictable but all in all, they were also fun and kept my 10 year old interested while we drove around town.
