Jack and Annie find themselves in Depression-era New York City, searching for a unicorn they must free. Mary Pope Osborne obviously loves the city and enjoys sharing its treasures, including Central Park and the Cloisters, with the children in the story and with young listeners. Her narration is as entertaining as her writing. She reads with impeccable pacing, a clear, pleasing voice, and careful attention to dialogue, especially that between Jack and Annie. She also creates fun new voices as we meet curators, cabdrivers, and other long-ago New Yorkers. Children will enjoy listening as this engaging author transports them to one of our great cities, in one of its more somber times. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
