Katherine Kellgren and Cassandra Campbell share narrating this story-within-a-story. Campbell touchingly portrays a mother reading a tale to her daughter, who asks questions as the plot unfolds. Kellgren energetically introduces Arabella and Henrietta Osgood, identical twins who couldn't be more different. After Henrietta, more difficult and less favored by her parents, "punishes" her sister, she's sent to live with Aunt Priscilla, who lives in a creepy house with her black cats. Kellgren's best creation is former actress Aunt Priscilla, who's the most dramatic member of this group of eccentrics. When Arabella misses Henrietta, she has a thrilling and perilous journey to bring her sister home. Listeners will enjoy hearing the girls grow to appreciate each other and marvel at the unexpected conclusion. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2016]
