Just in time for Christmas, we have a stocking filler of a podcast for you: : the opening chapters of Ziptux's Incredible Cricket Adventures, a children's novel by Brijesh Luthra, read by the author.
Ziptux is a cricket-crazy 9-year old boy living in Switzerland, who dreams of being the best cricketer on Earth. His Swiss friends have no interest in the game, so he spends his time playing cricket with his silent partner – an abandoned scarecrow.
One day, while trying to find his lost ball, Ziptux meets a man who calls himself Mr. Trick-them-all, from the planet Kiri-Kiri-kit, who may just have been the person who introduced cricket to the Earth in the first place.
Can Ziptux prove himself spiffy enough for this new world? And what will happen if he does?
