Publisher's Summary

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World meets The Maltese Falcon with plenty of jokes and gags to keep you laughing out loud. If you loved Who Framed Roger Rabbit or Zootopia this is the audio adventure for you!
The Case of the Cursed Dodo is a hilarious throwback to old time radio serials starring a hardboiled Winnie-the-Pooh. His name's Jake G. Panda, and he's a wildlife investigator. He works at a flophouse for endangered critters called the Last Resort. He's the hotel snoop. The resident fuzz. 
It's his job to keep these unusual guests safe and out of harm's way. This first installment of The Endangered Files is a wild and woolly mystery involving a missing guest, a green bird, and a bunch of double-crossing critters all hot on the trail of a valuable artifact called The Cursed Dodo. 
This audiobook is designed to introduce young listeners to the subject of endangered species in a fun and informative way. So join this tough talking panda detective and a cast of endangered creatures on a globe-trotting audio adventure that will appeal to the kid in all of us.  
The complete list of narrators includes: Michael McConnohie, J.W. Terry, Dave Mallow, Molly Brandenburg, Antoinette Attell, Ian Whitcomb, Barbara Watkins, and Bobb Lynes.

Audio Cartoon a winner.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Case of the Cursed Dodo to be better than the print version?

Have only listened to the Audio..... My suspicion is that kids would enjoy the Audio more after reading the book.

What other book might you compare The Case of the Cursed Dodo to and why?

Sort of a animated version of many of the classic detectives.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The variety of narrators bring depth to the story especially to children.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The entire book is a delightful experience that anyone could enjoy.

Any additional comments?

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review

More than an audio-movie

Very fun format - more like listening to a movie than a book. Kids would love this one full of lot of animals and action and sound effects!

Excellent portrayal of the Genre

Would you try another book written by Jake G. Panda or narrated by the narrators?

Probably not, but this is in no way a reflection of the story or production itself, rather it just not being a genre I enjoyed as much as I had hoped.

Would you recommend The Case of the Cursed Dodo to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes, if this was a type of recording that I thought they would be interested in or enjoy

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Well paced, good additional sound effects etc

If this book were a film would you go see it?

yes, I think it would translate well into film media

Any additional comments?

This was a good story, set in a anthropomorphic approach of a 1960's detective noir feel. Not something which floated my boat, but that was personal taste, looking outside of myself, it was a good story with a fantastic execution of a genre I wanted to try.

I was given the book in return for an honest, unbiased review.
