THE UNCOMMONERS #1: THE CROOKED SIXPENCE

by | Read by Jayne Entwistle

Children Ages 8+ • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrator Jayne Entwistle treats listeners to a tale set under the streets of London--in Lundinor, to be exact, a place where people and objects are not always what they seem. As 11-year-old Ivy Sparrow and her older brother, Seb, tend to sick, amnesiac Granma Sylvie and search desperately for their parents, they're swept into a mystery that could cost many lives. Entwistle is that special narrator who lets the story tell itself. The myriad details of place and action speak for themselves. Her supreme elocution, ever-onward pacing, and gentle British accent are all in play. She creates believable characterizations of the young heroine and hero, giving warmth to the endearing characters of Lundinor and steel and ice to its many villains.
