Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Stig Wemyss

Children Ages 6+ • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Nix's four tales mix the everyday and the offbeat. In each story, a clever youngster faces an unusual challenge, whether confronting a fearsome pirate-rat, an alien, or a misunderstood sea serpent. These stories were made to be read aloud, and they've found their perfect narrator in Stig Wemyss. His enthusiasm is contagious, and his twangy Australian accent adds even more fun. Wemyss doesn't miss an opportunity to enliven dialogue or highlight wordplay: “There's a bloody beastly beast on the battlements!" Transforming his voice from that of a guttural pirate-rat into that of a petulant child, an absent-minded parent, or a perplexed sea serpent, he's both playful and insightful. His narration transforms these fun stories into thoroughly delightful performances. J.C.G.
