Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This is an imaginative and entertaining podcast that kids (and adults) will enjoy. The Alien Adventures of Finn Caspian is well written and performed by Jonathan Messinger, whose vivid descriptions and dialogue transport you to Finn Caspian's world. The funny robot voices and sound design add to the feeling of actually being in outer space.

What's really special about The Alien Adventures of Finn Caspian is how a love of reading is embedded in the stories. The way in which the robots get their personalities downloaded from books is a clever and original idea. There are also references to other authors and children's literature, and clues to the mysteries are often related to characters from books. This podcast will capture the imaginations of kids who love a good story, especially those who enjoy adventure, mystery, or science fiction.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
