Princess Anidori-Kiladra of Kildenree was born with a word on her tongue, and a secret magic. Though she is raised in luxury, she is never quite comfortable with who she is, or what she is to become. Then she is sent on a journey to marry an unknown prince. The trip is difficult, and before it is finished all her expectations are overturned. Alone, friendless, stripped of her crown and her title, Ani must learn to make her own path in the world. Along the way, she just might learn to be a princess.

While predictable, this story really had me by the end. I cared for the characters Shannon Hale created, as well as the world they lived in. I prefer one narrator versus a full cast because sometimes the full cast have weak actors voicing the parts but overall the cast did well, especially the narrator and main characters. I will definitely read the next book in the series.
My girls will love this! Good moral character qualities but still exciting.
A full five honks! (Or whatever geese do). I am so glad to a found this. Well-crafted, the story does justice to the original fairytale without changing the storyline for a much at all.
Anni the goose girl is a very good character-- truly the character of a humble Princess who has to learn the plight of the common people and seek their help.
There is a lot of action and plot twists-- just the kind of thing to keep my daughters really interested. And the 2005 full cast audio production of it on audible is great!
