Summary

WARNING! This audio contains: mischief, mayhem, and perhaps a dash of malice...!

In this first volume of The Squickerwonkers Series, The Squickerwonkers - a band of colorful marionettes and stars of the fabulous Squickershow - have welcomed a new cast member into their troupe: Selma the Spoiled of the Rin Run Royals, and she's more SPOILED than ever! Having inherited the wealth and power of Selma's Gramp, The Squickerwonkers are no longer outcasts. They are ready to leave their enchanting and spooky wagon to get out and enjoy their new riches. What trouble will ensue? Enter (and listen) at your own risk to find out....

8 year old me gives this book 5 stars

I loved the voices the author did. I couldn't find an actual book with pictures so I got this one and her reading made it an amazing experience. the story was great and I love that Selma got what she deserved. The Squickerwonkers is my favorite book and this one was just as good as the first one.

Encore! Encore!

Charismatic, enthusiastic, loveable and huggable, was the narration by Evangeline Lilly, with an elaborate tale of spoils and toils, it had me feeling silly. Clearly, it's infectious, spooky, and precious; great listen for everybody, recommended for anybody!

love it. voices from both volumes is best

I think adding all voices from both volumes would be great. it gives each character their own personalities :-) keep it up! I love The Squickerwonkers! i will definitely share!
