Young Adult Young Adult • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

The bestselling author writes an epic tale with an unlikely hero. Halli Sveinsson is short in stature, long on relieving his boredom by pulling pranks. He wonders about the boundaries beyond his home, where monstrous Trows are said to roam, but he has no idea of the frightening secrets that await him or how he'll lead his peaceful valley into peril. David Thorn heightens the drama of Halli’s adventures. He also brings out the story’s wit and wordplay for listeners. Each chapter begins with a short interlude about Svein, Halli's forebear. While this device helps establish the epic tone, it may confuse listeners. S.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2009]
