The hushed, alluring Australian voice of Edwina Wren introduces the listener to a painted music box that had changed young Leo Zifkak’s life. The music box, like C. S. Lewis’s famous wardrobe, is a magic transporter, and through its power, Leo and his cousin Mimi travel to the magical world of Rondo, the setting of a children’s fantasy trilogy by Australian author Emily Rodda.
The Wizard of Rondo is the second in the trilogy and takes listeners through a war with the Blue Queen and into the perils of the Cloud Palace on their quest to locate a wizard named Bing. If it sounds suspenseful and funny at the same time, that’s the point!
