In his afterword, Philip Pullman shares his pleasure in creating an original retelling of the tale of Aladdin and the lamp. From the opening moments in China, when Aladdin’s future is unknown to him, to the final moments, Pullman brings high drama to the story. James Goode picks up where Pullman leaves off, presenting a memorable performance. His exuberant characterizations, including well-done accents, bring Pullman’s words to life and are set off from the straightforward narrative passages. Goode’s breathlessness heightens the suspense and brings immediacy to the action. Enjoy the characters of the conniving Moor, Aladdin’s flummoxed mother, the deep-voiced jinn, the proud and protective sultan, and, of course, the clever and energetic hero himself. A.R.
