Alice and her three friends, blustery David, shy Michael and over-the-top Frankie (the lone American) as they try to solve the mystery of the worm (dragon) and help poor Martha, the accused witch, to withstand her fate. Read by Scottish actress Hannah Gordon, with a captivating Highland lilt, the book's only grating note is Gordon's flat, high-pitched "American" accent for poor Frankie. In every other facet of her interpretation, however, Gordon enhances what is already an enchanting story. M.C. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 99]
