The kindhearted, inexperienced young prince leaves his palatial home in the company of a small army, but he still manages to fall into one misadventure after another. He encounters good and evil souls, all of which are superbly portrayed by narrator Steven Crossley. From the clear, formal tones of Jen's father, the king, to the gruff, villainous growls of a corrupt overlord, Crossley demonstrates an in-depth appreciation for each personality. The smooth transitions between the story narration and the speaking parts are equally exceptional, as is the humor that he creates with his vocal exaggerations. His reading is perfectly suited to the young audience for which the story is written. J.J.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 99]
