MAGIC MARKS THE SPOT The Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates, Book 1

by | Read by Katherine Kellgren

Children Ages 8+ • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Hooray for Katherine Kellgren! In another young people's pirate adventure, Kellgren invents new voices that fit but do not copy her other award-winning pirate character, Jacky Faber. In this tale of hijinks on the high seas, Kellgren's performance tickles the funny bone. Admiral's daughter Hilary Westfield wants to be a pirate, but (horrors!) she's being sent to a finishing school for young ladies. Listeners follow her adventures after she escapes from Miss Pim's. Kellgren animates Carlson's assortment of kooky characters, including a governess, a freelance pirate, and a smart-alecky, fast-talking gargoyle. Through newspaper articles, hilarious letters, and bits from pirate manuals, including "Treasure Hunting for Beginners," Kellgren provides lots of fun and pain-free magic in this first of a fine new series.
