The enchanting E.B. White Read Aloud honoree, now on audio!
"Are you a believer in fanciful things? In pirates and dragons and creatures and kings? Then sit yourself down in a comfortable seat, with maybe some cocoa and something to eat, and I’ll spin you the tale of Katrina Katrell, a girl full of courage (and daring, as well!), who down in the subway, under the ground, saw something fantastical roaming around.... What was it she saw? I’d rather not say. (Who’s ever heard of a Zorgle, anyway?) But if you are curious, clever and brave, if intrepid adventure is something you crave, then download this book and I’ll leave it to you to uncover the secret of ZORGAMAZOO!"
Join Morty the Zorgle and Katrina in a sophisticated rhyming adventure for kids of all ages!

SUCH a fun family experience, to listen to this hilariously wicked and smartly heartwarming tale during a family road trip this summer. Both me and my daughters (ages 8 and nearly-10) enjoyed hearing about the adventures of Morty and Katrina Katrell. My husband didn't complain once, and that's high marks from him. 😏 Alan Cummings' narration was absolutely fantastic!!! I would listen to anything he read, but this story was particularly fun and pleasant and his wonderful accent made a tale of ancient lore and legendary creatures much more entertaining than I could have read it. An enthusiastic 5 stars!!!
My boys, 8 & 13, and I all enjoyed the story and the reading. We really like fantastic adventure stories. The narrator was fun to listen to. My husband couldn't handle the verse and rhyme, which was fun and constraining at the same time.
Lovely story and masterful narration by Alan Cumming; funny, witty, with a dash of wistfulness, and overall charming and heartwarming.
