Raquel Beattie's enchanting narration elevates this fantastical misadventure featuring the Mandolinis--a family of magical artists. Chaos abounds after 11-year-old Rosa Mandolini accidentally unleashes a vengeful little monster that could destroy her family's legacy. Beattie's voice perfectly emulates Rosa's youthful spirit as she conspires with Payne, a talking crow, to capture the monster. Beattie creatively portrays the guileful Payne with caws and a clipped bird-like voice. Rosa eventually turns to her family for help, and Beattie showcases her versatility when voicing its intergenerational members. Each character's voice is distinct and taps into their eccentricities. Beattie's mirthful performance will make listeners of all ages feel like they are tucked in and listening to a talented storyteller impart a wondrous bedtime story.
