THE TWINS AND THE BIRD OF DARKNESS A Hero Tale from the Caribbean

by | Read by Robin Miles

Children Ages 6+ • 30 min. • Unabridged • © 2002

Princess Marie sacrifices herself to the evil Bird of Darkness; when Soliday hears this, he vows to rescue her. But it is his cowardly twin who rescues the princess, leaving Soliday to perish. Robin Miles brings a jaunty Caribbean tone to the story, while giving each character a distinct voice made unique by tone and personality traits. Miles uses her pacing and tone to build the tension in a story in which you know (or hope you know) what will happen. A good folktale, with a hint of violence, for younger readers also contains multiple layers for older readers. However, a good picture book without the pictures loses something. For a truly memorable reading experience, get the book with the audio. W.L.S. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
