Publisher's Summary

Mara's in hell! Neither one of the guys in her life is talking to her. Paul, her ex-boyfriend, is afraid she's going to give birth to a baby demon, complete with horns and hooves. He wants proof that he's actually the father. And her best friend, Gus, is so obsessed with his new boyfriend and his plans for the late, great Lord Grundleshanks, the poisonous toad, he has no time for anyone else.
After Gus flips the seasons and manages to bring summer into winter, everything starts going weirdly wrong. Summer refuses to leave. Household electronics start going haywire. When J.J., a local boy, vanishes from Mara's car, Mara begins to suspect he's been turned into a rat. But it's such a crazy idea, who could she possibly talk to about it? Then, her dead Aunt Tillie shows up to warn her that Gus is in trouble, and it's up to Mara to save him.
Before Mara can stop him, Gus opens up a portal to hell, and the devil comes calling. Now, she's got her hands full trying to find out what happened to J.J., assuring Paul she's not going to give birth to a mythological creature, and brokering a truce between Gus and the devil before Gus becomes hell's newest resident.

Why oh why did you change narrator?

I adored the first book in this series and quickly devoured it. Since then I have listened to it twice more. However this one let me down. What happened to Gus? He went from the sexy sounding guy to I don't know what. The part in the book when they kiss...all of a sudden it was icky as the image of Gus in my head had completely changed from hot, sexy guy to the uncle that gives you the creeps. Several other characters also changed but I was more forgiving of those.
Other than Gus's massive change, I liked the story once again and will be buying the next in the series (hopefully with the original narrator). Christiana Miller is a fabulous tale teller and I very much enjoy her work.

Not a fan of how the narrator did Gus's voice

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Probably not, there were way too many turns, it could've been less complicated.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The ending left you wanting to read the next book, whether or not you liked this one.

What didn’t you like about Barbara Benjamin-Creel’s performance?

She did not have much range with her voices -- the Italian/Latin characters sounded as if they were from Germany & what I disliked the most was Gus's voice. He is a gay guy from LA, not the clown in Stephen King's book IT. I didn't particularly like Marie Rose's rendition of Gus in the first book but it was better than this rendition.

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


Any additional comments?

Consistency of narrators across a book series is crucial to me.

Not bad

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The change of narrator between the first book and the second was disappointing, Nothing wrong with Barbara Benjamin-Creel's performance but she voiced the characters differently and it was particularly jarring to hear Gus taling in such a different voice from the first book.

Did Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie We're in Trouble! inspire you to do anything?

Sadly it inspired me to check for changes of narrator between books in a series - the difference was jarring.

Any additional comments?

The story was a worthy sequel to the first book, Long may the series flourish.

I absolutely love the toad witch books I wish there was a book three, however I preferred the narrator of the first book as the narrator of the second book changed the sound of gus's voice and that small change spoiled the book for me but that is the only negative point otherwise fab story I want more
