The Greatest Giggle for Kids on Earth

If you could sum up The Greatest Show Off Earth in three words, what would they be?

Mr 7 and Miss11 loved every moment. Richard Mitchley does a wonderful job as narrator and kept the children enthralled throughout the whole story. Margaret Mahy is such a fun writer that even I enjoyed listening - the consumate childrens author.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Greatest Show Off Earth?

At the end of the story when the acropila started exploding because of the jokes.

Which character – as performed by Richard Mitchley – was your favorite?

The Mangold
