Science Fiction Audiobook - Space Station Rat by Michael J. DaleyMichael J. Daley’s Space Station Rat is “Hard Science Fiction for the 4th or 5th grade level.” Hey! I used to have a pet rat. And I was at my best in science when I was in Grade 5. That’s why I think this is a book is tailor-made for me.

Space Station Rat is a new audiobook from a new Full Cast Audio imprint called “OneVoice.” Narrator Daniel Bostick and director Bruce Coville show what is involved in a Full Cast Audio (single voice) production in this YouTube video.

Matt Cruse is back in the phenomenal third volume in Kenneth Oppel’s bestselling, award-winning series – and this time he’s heading for outer space. AIRBORN and SKYBREAKER, the first two books in the series, have been among our bestselling and most-honored titles, and we think you’ll find this one just as thrilling – if not more so.

Science Fiction Audiobook - Space Station Rat by Michael J. DaleySpace Station Rat
By Michael J. Daley; Read by Daniel Bostick
3 CDs – 3 Hours – [UNABRIDGED]
Publisher: Full Cast Audio
Published: 2010
ISBN: 9781936223053

There’s not much true science fiction available for the intermediate grades, so we were delighted to find this terrific outer space adventure story. Though it is humorous and exciting, its science seriously, as a good SF novel should. This is a solo read, provided by our own Dan Bostick, who was named one of the five best voices in Children’s Audio last year by AudioFile Magazine.
