This Title No Longer Available - Please Do Not Order

by Robert A. Heinlein

Lummox is not exactly the family dog. Big a triceratops but more exotic in appetite—he once ate a used Buick—"Lummy" has a decided penchant for trouble. Still, he’s been part of the Thomas clan for generations, and his current owner, John Thomas Stuart, XI, cares for him deeply. Just how deeply will be tested when Lummox’s restless appetite starts a chain of events that turn his relationship with John Thomas upside down—and puts first John Thomas and then the Earth itself in peril.

Scorchingly funny, politically acute, yet deeply human, The Star Beast remains one of Robert Heinlein’s most beloved novels.

Reviews:
"David Baker flawlessly narrates the story ... a great way to introduce young listeners to a Heinlein classic."
    — Booklist
 
"This superb full-cast narration of Heinlein's classic will appeal to most science fiction aficionados. ... listeners will be drawn into a seamless and dramatic performance. Gems of the recording include narrator David Baker whose omniscient tones weave the other voices together, and Rodney Hudson, as Undersecretary Kiku, whose exotic accent and keen political wisdom make him unforgettable. ... Excellent pacing and a story for those of all ages round out a notable audiobook."
