by | Read by Katherine Kellgren

Children Ages 10+ • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Katherine Kellgren's animated reading draws listeners into the fourth in a fantasy series that began with a retelling of THE FROG PRINCE and has evolved into a magical epic. Romance and enchantment unite in the fast-moving adventure of Princess Emma and her Prince Eadric, who wish to marry despite their mothers' objections. Not only does Kellgren deal ably with the story's pacing, she handles the crowded cast with equal aplomb. Her wide repertoire of tones and voices distinguishes ghosts, trolls, fairies, giants, sea monsters, a chatty bat, a lovesick mare, Eadric's bratty brother, and a whiny dragon. Kellgren also captures lovers' quarrels, Emma's struggles with performing spells, and both mothers' gradual acceptance of magic and their children's relationship.
