Narrating with her elegant English accent, Phyllida Nash takes sisters Aurora, Storm, and Anything through a series of wild and perilous adventures. Nash brings range and depth to the characters--from sweet elder sister Aurora to the threatening villain, who covets the pipe given to Storm by her mother before her death. Details from well-known fairy tales are woven throughout, and the pace and suspense never slacken. One of the most surprising characters with one of the best voices is Mother Collops--is she ogress or friend? Reminiscent of the tale of the Pied Piper, this story, both hilarious and serious, "makes you shudder and exclaim in delight." R.H.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2008]
