'In the grand tradition of Blackadder and Monty Python and the Holy Grail is the story of an anti-hero who can't help but find his way to greatness whether he likes it or not. Apropos is a rogue, a rascal, a scoundrel, a cheat...and those are his good points. Lame of leg but fast of wit, the only reason Apropos doesn't consider chivalry dead is because he's not yet through with it. An orphan with a chip on his shoulder, Apropos, travels to the court of the good King Runcible, with three goals in mind: to find his father, seek retribution for the death of his mother, and to line his own pockets. However, Apropos carries the most troublesome burden a would-be harbinger of chaos can bear: He may well be a hero foretold, a young man of destiny. It is not a notion that Apropos finds palatable, having very low regard for such notions as honor, selflessness, or risking one's neck. Yet when Apropos finds himself assigned as squire to the most senile knight in the court-Sir Umbrage of the Flaming Nether Regions, whose squires tend to have a rather short life span-Apropos is forced to rise to the occasion lest he be dragged under-permanently.'Show more

But on this mission something has gone wrong. The brain-deads inside the City of Toronto have suddenly become more violent and dangerous than usual. It's as if someone has changed the rules and gotten the brain-deads to think.

A laugh-out-loud tale packed with science, adventure, and a whole lot of fun for all ages! Humans have gone too far, wrecking planet Earth. We might need to find a new planet. But who could possibly help us do that? The AstroNuts! Lucky for us, back in the 1980s, NNASA (NotNASA) created four secret superpowered Animal Astronauts - AlphaWolf, SmartHawk, LaserShark, and StinkBug. They were built to be automatically launched into space to check out possible Goldilocks planets if things on Earth ever got too bad. Unlucky for us, things just got too bad. The AstroNuts' first destination, the Plant Planet, looks just right. It has oxygen, shelter, water, and no obvious intelligent life. But what if plant life has a mind of its own? And what if that mind has one very scary plan for our AstroNuts? A nonstop joyful listen for reluctant readers and fans ready to blast past Wimpy Kid. Performed by Nanette Savard, Danny Gavigan, Dawn Ursula, Tia Shearer, Chris Stinson, Terence Aselford, Richard Rohan, Colleen Delany, John Kielty, and Jenna Sharpe.Show more
