Editorial Reviews

If there's one thing kids can never get enough of, it's a good space story. Performed here by the veteran Dina Pearlman, with a serious yet perfectly engaging delivery, is the fun and mischievous story of young Barbary and her fuzzy, little secret. After a few failed attempts, Barbary gets the chance to travel to the orbital space station Einstein. Once there, however, she realizes that if the secret passenger she packed gets discovered, she will surely get sent back to Earth. Barbary, full of aliens, space travel, and high jinks, is a wild and fun ride perfect for any young listener.
