Children Ages 10+ • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Daniel Nayeri's dreamy narration pairs perfectly with this fantastical novel. Traveling merchant Samir saves Monkey from being stoned to death, and their journey on the Silk Road begins. As repayment, Monkey helps Samir sell his wares. The catch is that Samir will spin any lie in order to make a sale, and this won't be the last time he saves Monkey's life either. Nayeri expertly narrates a story that smoothly weaves thrilling action and deep moments of character revelation. His performance is dynamic, clear, and suitable for a wide audience. The audiobook contains so much vivid color that listeners will feel as if they are traveling along with the master and apprentice. Truly a masterpiece of middle-grade fiction.
