Move over, C.S. Lewis; Melissa Studdard is here! Annalise of the Verdant Hills is one of the most delightful protagonists to skip through the pages of literature since Dorothy landed in Oz. Join Annalise and her two walking, talking wondersheep as they travel to ever more outlandish places and meet outrageous and enlightening folk on their journey to discover interconnectedness in a seemingly disconnected world. Discover with them how just one person can be the start of the change we all strive for. A book for all ages, for all time: wonderful, wacky, and bursting with truth!
Six Weeks to Yehidah, Melissa Studdard's delightful debut novel, is one of the more metaphysical children's stories you will ever read. Bridging imaginary worlds of talking sheep, cloud kingdoms, magic labyrinths and spirit guides, "Yehida" comes to life in a kaleidoscopic array of color, sound and light.
Listeners young and old alike will be transported via the sentient observations of main character Annalise as she experiences the transcendental metamorphosis of spiritual awareness.

Six Weeks to Yehidah by Melissa Studdard is a well-written and unique story of Annalise, a 10 year-old girl who is a dreamer much like Alice of Wonderland fame. Annalise goes on an adventure one rainy afternoon into the clouds. Two of her "friends" accompany her on this journey, and she meets several intriguing and highly entertaining characters. During this grand adventure and in "baby step" fashion, Annalise discovers the answer to the age-old question of "why are we here"?
Karen Krause’s narration is simply fantastic. She really brings the characters to life, using a variety of voices, and she even sings too! Karen gives each character their own distinct voice and she seamlessly switches between genders and characters with ease. Simply put, she's one of the best narrators in the business!
I recommend Six Weeks to Yehidah to anyone who is a fan of the Narnia books and realizes there is more to life than what meets the eyes.
Alice and Wonderland, The Chronicles of Narnia
Ms. Krause is able engage both children and adults, with her entertaining character voices. But the voices never become a distraction, and her reading is seamless.
I laughed at the absurd and silly situations that Annalise found herself in.
