Arriman, awful Wizard of the North, sets out to locate a bride--a local witch. The text of this children's fantasy cries out for a British accent, both in syntax and setting and it would be difficult to imagine a reading superior to the one Prunella Scales provides. Characterizations are masterful consistent despite the broad cast of characters, many of whom require particularly irritating or loathsome qualities of voice. Her dead-pan delivery enhances the inherent humor of the text and a superb sense of timing elevates the tension. T.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 93]
