Mr. Chickee, the genial blind man in the neighborhood, gives 9-year-old Steven a mysterious bill with 15 zeros on it and the image of a familiar but startling face. Could it be a quadrillion dollar bill? Could it be real? Well, Agent Fondoo of the U.S. Treasury Department and his team of Secret Government Agents are determined to get that money back! But Steven and his best friends, Russell and Zoopy the giant dog, are more than a match for the Feds. After all, Steven is the president of the Flint Future Detectives Club, and the inventor of fantastic spying and detecting equipment such as the Snoopeeze 9000!

From AudioFile:

Every Saturday morning 11-year-old Steven helps his blind neighbor, Mr. Chickee, do his shopping. Before leaving for vacation Mr. Chickee gives Steven a bill that contains 15 zeroes. Is it REAL? Steven, his buddy Russell, and huge dog Zoopy try to figure out the money with Agent Fondoo from the U.S. Treasury Department. Narrator Joe Holt skillfully captures American and Jamaican accents, shares such memorable lines as--"This candy is so good it's worth the tooth decay!"--and vocally illustrates the unmistakable differences of a very large dog and a very small dog. A additional benefit is Steven's use of Grandpa's dictionary, through which he and listeners learn new words. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
