Audible Editor Reviews

What every baseball fan knows: Fenway Park in Boston is the one-time home of Babe Ruth and is also the forlorn amphitheater of "the curse" that kept the Red Sox without a World Series title for over 80 years. What few know: In 2004, twelve-year-old Oscar Egg makes a visit to a secret world below Fenway Park where a bunch of "Cursed Creatures" have been sentenced to live in misery until the curse is broken. At least, that’s how author Julianna Baggott imagines it in this charming young adult tale of fantasy and baseball.

Performed by the kindly, paternal voice of William Dufris, The Prince of Fenway Park takes the listener on Oscar’s touching and funny journey to free himself, his father, and his team.

Publisher's Summary

It's been 86 years since the Red Sox won a World Series. Eighty-six years cursed....

Twelve-year-old Oscar Egg believes he is cursed, just like the Red Sox. His real parents didn't want him, and now his adopted mom has dumped him off to live with his strange, sickly dad.

But there's something Oscar doesn't know. The Boston Red Sox really are cursed, and not just because they sold Babe Ruth in 1919. Someone deliberately jinxed the team, and the secret to breaking the Curse lies deep below Fenway Park, with Oscar's dad and the Cursed Creatures, a group that has been doomed to live out their miserable lives below Fenway until the Curse is broken.

Oscar knows he can be the one to break the Curse, allowing the Red Sox to finally win the World Series and setting the Cursed Creatures free.

But some of the creatures are angry. Some don't want the Curse broken. Some want Oscar, and the Red Sox, to fail and remain cursed forever.
