Full Cast AudioAlexandria LaFaye is the SOLO reader on this FULL CAST AUDIO audiobook. It’s a seeming contradiction: How can an audiobook be both read by a full cast and just one narrator? Maybe you’re thinking dissociative identity disorder? Nah. There’s an easier explanation. Full Cast Audio has started a new imprint called “One Voice” in which you get a traditional solo unabridged narration from a company known for having every audiobook performed by a Full Cast.

Kyna has a deep-seated (and well-earned) fear of the water. So when her adoptive parents announce that they have rented a summer house on Lake Champlain, she begs to be left behind for the summer. Alas, this is not possible. Yet even at the lake Kyna does her best to avoid the water, exploring instead the forests and hillsides, documenting them with her camera. But when her new friend, Tylo, draws her into his quest for strange water creatures, Kyna finds herself pulled into unexpected discoveries – not only about the lake, but about her own strange heritage. A novel that pulses with a passion for nature and the natural world, Water Steps is rich with love and loss, longing and renewal, a bit of mystery and a touch of fantasy. With an extraordinary gift for dialect, author A. LaFaye brings its rhythms to vivid life in this haunting reading.

And this one is a Norweigan-to-English translation of Jo Nesbø‘s first kid’s book (he also writes hard-boiled crime novels). William Dufris, who turns up in quite a few Full Cast Audio casts, narrates. Sadly, the package does not clearly state if he also provided the farts.

Nilly is new to the neighborhood, but he is quick to make friends: Doctor Proctor, an eccentric professor; and Lisa, who is teased by the twin terrors Truls and Trym. Nilly and Lisa help Doctor Proctor develop his latest invention, a powder that makes you fart! The powder makes Nilly and Lisa very popular at school when they sell it for fifty cents a bag. And they get revenge on Truls and Trym by giving them a dose of extra-strength powder that shoots them up into a tree. All is good fun… until someone steals the industrial-strength powder—which was supposed to make Doctor Proctor famous—to use for evil purposes…
