Children Ages 10+ • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1902

First published in 1902, Edith Nesbit's novel tells the story of four children (and their burdensome baby brother), whose boring summer is turned on its ears when they discover an unlikely fairy capable of fulfilling one wish per day. As their friendship with the grumpy, furry, bug-eyed creature grows, the children learn to be careful what they wish for. With musical elasticity, Virginia Leishman speaks to the listener, matching the author's conversational style, guiding this classical flight of fancy. Leishman's magnetic tongue holds the listener's attention as she brings the children, and their wishes, to life. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
