In crisp upper-crust tones, Kate Reading narrates this charming mystery, set in a land filled with Grimm characters. Gretel, detective extraordinaire, investigates the loss of Albrecht Dürer’s “Frog” print, stolen from a descendant of the same name. Talking mice, hobgoblins, princesses, officers, and military men are just a few of the amazing characters listeners meet, all expertly performed by Reading. Every character—from Hans to Wolfie, from Ferdinand von Ferdinand to Police Inspector Strudel and Gottfried the mouse—has its own accent and tones—depending upon his or her personality. Reading shifts personas flawlessly while Gretel follows clues small and large, just a few steps ahead of the law. This cleverly crafted mystery is full of wry humor, which Reading reads without a snicker. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2015]
