When the city of Dullitch is infested with rats, the only one able to get rid of them is Diek, a dim shepherd who is possessed by evil magic. When the city refuses to pay up, Diek charms the children away and into the mountains. Robert Llewellyn admirably handles numerous characters in a story that, despite its dark and subtle humor, is largely uninteresting. Llewellyn does a great range of United Kingdom accents and gives energy to a plot that sometimes drags. This audiobook is best for the most focused young listeners who can get the sophisticated tongue-in-cheek jokes. J.M.S. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
