Masters of Disaster

Borrowing and downloading are disabled for this device.

Henry Mosley decides that he and his pals Riley and Reed need to go on some earth-shaking adventures and make a name for themselves. Henry is the mastermind; Riley's the researcher who's prepared for anything. And somehow fearful Reed always ends up with the scariest, craziest assignments.

Roped into wacky attempts to break world records, reenact scenes from books, solve a hundred-year-old murder, and carry out Henry's other inspired ideas, Riley and Reed follow their fearless leader everywhere: into the wilderness, inside a bull-riding ring, into a haunted house, off the neighbors' roof, and into a cataclysmic collision with explosive life-forms. Gary Paulsen brings all his trademark humor to this tale of fun and disaster.

About the Author-
  • Three-time Newbery-winning author Gary Paulsen, hailed as "one of the best-loved writers alive" by the New York Times, divides his time between his ranch in New Mexico, a sailboat on the Pacific Ocean, and his dog-kennel in Alaska. He's written over 200 books for young people, stories that have been embraced by readers of all ages.
Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Author Gary Paulsen personally introduces narrator Nick Podehl as a "trained professional who won't ruin the recording by laughing." His introduction is right on target: Podehl maximizes the story's humor without cracking himself up as he portrays three 12-year-olds who are embarking on "dangerous missions." Podehl shows the confidence of mastermind Henry, the nerdiness of scientific Riley, and the fear of na•ve Reed, who's duped into performing all the deeds. Podehl builds Reed's terror, for example, as the boy prepares to ride his bicycle off a third-story roof--he stutters and then breaks into full-blown horror before he emerges dazed, confused, and smelly from landing in a pile of dirty diapers. Podehl excels at the breakneck speed of all the breakneck adventures. S.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
