OPHELIA AND THE MARVELOUS BOY

by | Read by Jayne Entwistle

Children Ages 8+ • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Foxlee’s adaptation of the fairy tale “The Snow Queen” is set in a fanciful museum where Ophelia’s father, the curator, must create a large sword exhibit, supervised by the enigmatic director, Miss Kaminsky. Jayne Entwistle’s graceful narration alternates effortlessly between Ophelia’s quiet reluctance to abandon her passion for science and her father’s absentminded responses to her endless questions. Meanwhile, Ophelia inspects whole rooms dedicated to everything from teaspoons to dinosaurs. One day, she discovers a boy locked up in a secret room who needs her help to save the world from the evil Snow Queen. While the boy’s voice invokes hope and promise, the frosty undertones of the unctuous Miss Kaminsky send chills up the spine. This delightful story is made more so by Entwistle’s convincing performance. M.F.T. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2014]
