Frank Beddor took a classic story and turned it into a powerful, magical adventure with THE LOOKING GLASS WARS. With Part Two, SEEING REDD, Gerard Doyle once again shows what can be done with just a voice and talent. His cadence, his raw emotion, and his skill bring to life the story of Queen Alyss, who is battling the evil Aunt Redd to keep Wonderland out of her grasp. Doyle’s enthusiastic performance is reminiscent of Jim Dale’s work on the Harry Potter series. Clearly, Doyle has made this series his own. Beddor’s world is one in which “the power of imagination” is a literal thing. He has plausible explanations for even the most outrageous claims made in Lewis Carroll’s book. And you’ll believe every word. M.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
