Publisher's Summary

The Feathernail and Other Gifts (or The Adventures of Emily Finfeather), is a tale of altruism and magic for mature children and immature adults. Emily Finfeather is an orphan who lives with her angry and silent grandmother in a dark, windy, old house. On a field trip to the zoo, Emily is locked inside the aviary by evil classmates. What she discovers there will change the shape of reality forever.

    What did you love best about The Adventures of Emily Finfeather?

    It is a freely imaginative parable, or rather collection of parables. It shows good vs. evil, how a person can be deceived by evil which can be attractive and charming. It even examines the concept of revenge and guilt. It would be good for 7 or 8 years on up, but as is frequently the case, would be best when appreciated with the guidance of a loving adult, an intelligent, perceptive, loving adult, willing to ask "Is this right or wrong? Is there a better way?"

    To this adult it is a delight.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Prebble’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Oh yes! He is always wonderful! He hits just the right tone and expression.


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

    I certainly could enjoy it that way. A child might want to have it broken up.


    Any additional comments?

    It is for enjoying, not for over analyzing. Though I did not always agree completely with the values, neither did I find them too unfortunate.
