Luke Daniels zestfully narrates a story of the good-natured friendship between 9-year-old Trille Integard and his neighbor, Lena Lidd, Norway's answer to Pippi Longstocking. Daniels renders Trille as hesitant and introspective while Lena is a sometimes-unpredictable risk taker who is often rescued by her stalwart friend. In addition to skillfully capturing the kids, Daniels deftly portrays adults, especially enthusiastic Grandad as he and his young charges sail on the fjords. Each gorgeous description of Mathildewick Cove and the many--sometimes dangerous--adventures of the pair are relayed with gusto. Most thrilling is the kids' re-creation of Noah's Ark on Uncle Tron's small boat. Daniels's vivid description puts listeners on board with the reluctant animals. A gem of a listen for all ages.
