Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dorje Swallow, Rebecca Norfolk

Children Ages 10+ • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Dorje Swallow and Rebecca Norfolk alternate narrating duties in this fantasy quest. Six children and an elf search for the pieces of a key that are needed to save an Elven village from destruction. Oscar is a skateboarding teenager who finds himself sucked into this alternative world. In Swallow's hands, Oscar is a laid-back Australian with dashes of wry humor and charm. Norfolk's Imogen is full of moxie and banter as she shepherds her younger magical sisters, a cousin, and a family friend. Both narrators have fun with other characters--tiny elf Gruffudd squeaks and demands food; pirate-turned-prince Alejandro is unflappable and practical from years at sea. The journey matters more than the destination, and it is the expressive and charming narrators who elevate it to a lovely magical carpet ride. A.B.
