School of Fear – Audio


School of Fear, by Gitty Daneshvari

Everyone is afraid of something…

Madeleine Masterson is deathly afraid of bugs, especially spiders.

Theodore Bartholomew is petrified of dying.
Lulu Punchalower is scared of confined spaces.

Garrison Feldman is terrified of deep water.
With very few options left, the parents of these four twelve year-olds send them to the highly elusive and exclusive School of Fear to help them overcome their phobias. But when their peculiar teacher, Mrs. Wellington, and her unconventional teaching methods turn out to be more frightening than even their fears, the foursome realize that this just may be the scariest summer of their lives.

“Emma Walton Hamilton expressively reads the fast-paced action and witty repartee, giving each character a unique voice. The result is an amusing, intriguing, and slightly terrifying adventure, with a wonderful lesson for anyone who is afraid of something.” – School Library Journal, February 2010

Emma Hamilton’s handling of these characters ranges from snarky to hysterical—and is utterly enjoyable. Kids will laugh out loud at the machinations the four go through to avoid confronting their fears. The highlight of the production is Hamilton’s energetic and cheerful rendering of each character—she makes their obsessions charming additions to their personalities. – Audiofile Magazine, February 2010
