Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Lynne Reid Banks

Children Ages 8+ • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1976

Fifteen-year-old Dakin finds adventure, mystery and challenges when she decides to be the first to explore the magical Farthest-Away Mountain. Banks smoothly portrays all the characters with seamless transitions between each part. Many of the voices are of fantasy creatures. She gives the enchanted gargoyles sad, haunting wails, mimicking the real sounds that would occur if wind traveled through their spouts. Her menacing troll thunders his loud, frightening words, tempered by Banks's touch of humor and a cockney accent. For Dakin's voice, she adds a sweet innocence and strong determination that reflects the brave heroine's true soul. P.A.J.
