Cy, whose imagination allows him to time-travel, mistakenly summons the ancient Arabian storyteller Scheherazade to the 21st century. With the help of his Dream Master, Cy must devise a way to get the princess back to her time and place. In listening to Clifford Norgate's narration, it is sometimes difficult to distinguish between Cy's and Scheherazade's voices as they shift with the emotions of the story. Because the two characters grow and change significantly during their adventure, one senses that the changes in their voices are purposeful--nonetheless, they're confusing. Still, Norgate's deep voice is fitting for the story's shifting settings--whether ancient Arabia or contemporary England. J.K.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
