THE BLACK ROOM is the second in Cross's trilogy following THE DARK GROUND, also narrated by Steven Pacey. Robert survived a serious plane crash by shrinking and being taken to an underground cave by tiny Lorn. Now it's Robert's turn to save Lorn with the help of friends. The children must battle the rest of Lorn's tribe when both sides fight for her allegiance. Pacey demonstrates the scope of his talent as he introduces ordinary people and the Lilliputian creatures and predators from the mysterious underworld. Young listeners will relish the unusual tale while they ponder who is who and what is right and wrong in this battle of youthful wits.
