Pretending a castle they’ve discovered is enchanted, three children come upon a “sleeping princess” in the garden (It’s Mabel, the housekeeper’s niece, who is also doing some pretending). When Mabel shows them a secret treasure room, enchantment becomes a reality. Joanna Ward gives an even-paced, unembellished and totally satisfying reading. She skillfully renders dialogue with slight characterization, a good choice to avoid overwhelming Nesbit’s rich dialogue. The popular British author’s adventures of childhood have always been good read-aloud choices; the audiobook format superbly showcases them. C.R.A. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 94]
