The Thirteen Clocks | [James Thurber]

The Thirteen Clocks

The Thirteen Clocks is James Thurber's enduring story of life in a castle where time stands still on every clock at 10 minutes to five. The Duke of the castle ignores time and pays no attention to temperature either. He is a wicked Duke who has hands cold enough to choke a bull. The only warmth he understands is the warm hands of Princess Saralinda, his fair niece, whom he cherishes and protects from suitors.

Publisher's Summary

The Thirteen Clocks is James Thurber's enduring story of life in a castle where time stands still on every clock at 10 minutes to five. The Duke of the castle ignores time and pays no attention to temperature either. He is a wicked Duke who has hands cold enough to choke a bull. The only warmth he understands is the warm hands of Princess Saralinda, his fair niece, whom he cherishes and protects from suitors. In a comic and poetic way, this story makes us all want to love a Princess and to be a Prince. What's more, we want the 13 castle clocks to whir and tick and tell us that the time is NOW.

    "As a Fairy Tale Should Be"

    James Thurber is, of course, delightful, and Edward Woodard is an absolute Wonder.

    "Delightful"


    Edward Woodward gives a masterful narration of this classic Thurber fairy tale with marvellous portrayals of the different characters, bringing the whole to life just as one expects of the best audio book reader actors.
    The audio book also has a sound track and sound effects accompanying the reader throughout, which is the first time I have come across this. I was not sure I liked it at first, but having listened to the whole tale quite a few times now I find I like it very much.
