by | Read by Bronson Pinchot

Fantasy • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1987

Bronson Pinchot weaves the story of how Peter becomes the king of Delain, an unlikely event, given the scheming and plotting of an ancient and evil magician. Pinchot is a friendly storyteller whose easy manner affords great opportunity for contrast when the magician speaks in a tone that makes his evil intentions obvious. His menacing whisper may frighten young children—but teens will surely enjoy it. Pinchot presents the characters with subtle attention to their class and wit. His command of timing and pace helps to accentuate dramatic events and moments of strong emotion. He moves ahead in a quiet, disarming way until events reach out and grab the listener’s attention.
