Rossamund Bookchild is adapting to living as a foundling at Madam Opera's Estimable Marine Society for Foundling Boys and Girls. But as soon as he's chosen as lamplighter, he's off on monster-slaying adventures that take him from boyhood to manhood. This is not an easy listening experience. Right away listeners encounter a slew of uncommon names and an unfamiliar fantasy world peopled with all types of monsters and unique characters. Humphrey Bower's narration provides a raft as one travels in this strange world. His talent for voices differentiates characters, and his distinct pronunciations help listeners wade through jargon and detailed descriptions. Further, his emotional timbre allows listeners to dive into the character of Rossamund, as well as the monsters who people his world.
