    A city has many lives and layers. London has more than most. A 12-year-old boy named George Chapman is about to find this out the hard way. On a school trip he's punished for something he didn't do. In a tiny act of rebellion, he lashes out at a small carving on the wall - unexpectedly breaking it off. And then something horrible does happen: a stone pterodactyl unpeels form the wall and starts chasing him. George is already running before his mind starts trying to tell him that this is impossible!

    MJ Dulmage says: "Fantastic Story, Great Narrator!"
    "Not Harry Potter, but still pretty good"

    Story
    Would you listen to Stoneheart again? Why?

    I will definitely be listening to this again because it's a truly unique twist on what we perceive to be reality, and it exists right under our noses.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stoneheart?

    I don't want to give too much of a spoiler, but I liked Edie's glinting - which you'll just have to listen to the book to understand what I mean. I can't really tell you why either without the risk of ruining an important piece of the plot for you.


    What does Jim Dale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's Jim Dale! If you've heard him read the Harry Potter books, then you know exactly what I'm talking about. Every character gets their own voice and personality that the listener can identify and recognize even before he reads who's speaking. When Jim Dale reads a book, the words become the characters with real depth and life.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had had the ability to, I would have.


    Any additional comments?

    Unlike the HP series which ages with its characters, the Stoneheart series remains at its original age level and, while I enjoyed it as a full-grown adult, is appropriate for children as young as 10 without the need for parental concern. Of course you'll want to listen to it with them anyway because, let's face it, why should they have all the fun?

    There are a couple of foul words used in the story, but they're minor ones and I don't feel that there is a risk of young children wanting to pick them up.
