Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tracy-Ann Oberman

Children Ages 10+ • 4 hrs. • Abridged • ©

Eva Ibbotson is one of the best authors writing for young readers today—a 21st-century E.B. Nesbit or Frances Hodgson Burnett. This story is flawlessly delivered by Tracy-Ann Oberman, who connects perfectly with the charming descriptions of England prior to WWII. She uses just the right deft touch to portray the spunky and deeply caring heroine, Tally, as she discovers the school she's been sent to is not a fearful place, but a wonderful sanctuary of freedom and self-expression. Tally's further adventures include meeting the crown prince of Begania, careening around Europe by train, and rescuing the prince from the Nazis. Oberman's performance is delightful, a perfect match for this wonderful story. D.G Winner of AudioFIle Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2008]
