SKULDUGGERY PLEASANT

Earphones Award Winner

by Derek Landy | Read by Rupert Degas

Harper Audio
Young Adult
Ages 12+

This production is exactly the reason young adult fantasy fare can work so well as audio entertainment. Narrator Rupert Degas will be known to fans of Philip Pullman as Pantalaimon in the audios of His Dark Materials, and he does a bang-up job here as well. This is dark comic fantasy, and Degas’s timing and complete grasp of the main character’s personality couldn’t be better.... Read More
