The rich tones of narrator Kate Reading's voice are a perfect fit for this poetic tale of the Brontë children's adventures in the imaginary wonderland of their own making. The story is filled with dazzling imagery and glorious wordplay, which Reading masterfully performs with a lilting style that highlights the beautiful alliteration and musical assonance of Valente's work. The voices selected to characterize each of the Brontë siblings and the fantastical figures of Glass Town splendidly highlight small aspects of the characters, major and minor. Reading sensitively performs the range of delicate emotions--grief, wonder, betrayal, delight--that will make this story an enduring favorite fans will want to revisit many times. D.L.Y.
