Children Ages 10+ • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

Tess, a Dublin shape-shifter, enjoys her gift by running in parks and wooded lands in a variety of animal forms, until she meets Kevin, a fellow shifter. Together, they answer an urgent summons from former switcher Lizzie, via her network of chattering rats. Niamh Cusack, herself born in Dublin, narrates Tess's amazing story with the urgency required of such an apocalyptic tale. Tess's transformative powers and the compelling mission to save the Northern Hemisphere from destruction by the insidious krools will enchant middle-grade fantasy fans. Cusack's frenetic rat communications and Lizzie's thick and grammatically tangled brogue are also highlights of this charming recording.
