by | Read by Kate Burton

Children Ages 10+ • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Literature is full of poor orphaned little girls, but this particular orphan, Molly Moon, takes control of her life and gains confidence and power through a special book on hypnotism. To realistic, familiar concerns, Byng adds enough fantasy and suspense to create an exciting adventure. Kate Burton's strong British accent and clear enunciation create a cast of old and young, male and female characters. Her children's voices bring to life the bullies and the innocents of school and neighborhood life while her adult voices enhance the dramatic contrasts, providing extra structure for the slowly building plot. Her pacing--from clipped speech to slow, ponderous meanderings--builds the suspense to a realistic, rather than fantasy, ending, leaving questions of morality and ethics. W.L.S.
