It has been five long years since DEALING WITH DRAGONS, Book One of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles, was first brought to life by the Words Take Wing Repertory Company. Thanks to insistent customers, the rest of the series is now finally being recorded--and it has been worth the wait. SEARCHING FOR DRAGONS offers a full-cast performance, in which the Princess Cimorene aids the King of the Enchanted Forest (with the help of a magician, a witch, a few cats, a Rumpelstilskin character, and other odd bodkins) to discover who has been stealing magic from the kingdom and who has kidnapped Kazul, king of the dragons. Are wicked wizards involved, as usual? Most of the original actors from Book One are here, except for a new Kazul, who successfully tries to match the gravelly voice of her predecessor. The full ensemble works well to bring Wrede's fun and exciting fantasy to life. M.M.O. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
