Fun & Unusual

A great part of the fun of this listen is the astounding and preposterous things that the characters all accept as normal! In that way, it reminded me of The Munsters or The Addams Family! Still, the real story surrounds the kids -- Titus, Pandora and Baby Damp, a father who disappeared, and a family fortune. Oh, and don't forget the nanny who seems too perfect to be true and isn't telling everything.
