Inspired by the Celtic legend and the spirit of the imagination, Christmas in Camelot is Mary Pope Osborne's gift to young listeners everywhere. It begins with a simple invitation to spend Christmas Eve in Camelot, a magical place that exists only in myth and fantasy. What Jack and Annie don't know is that the invitation will send them on a quest to save Camelot itself, not from destruction, but from being forgotten forever.

My five year old daughter and I love this book. We are listening to it for the third time this week and we're both enjoying it again.

The story has good plot twists, a nice and not sticky sweet message and believable characters. Mary Pope Osborne does a fabulous job narrating this story.

  • The Shepherd, the Angel, and Walter the Christmas Miracle Dog

The year is 1960, and, as it is every year, the Christmas pageant at St. John's Episcopal Church is a very big deal. Doug is a shepherd this year, which is better than being a "Three King", because, for one thing, you get to carry a stick.

Funny But Dated

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 12-24-06

I bought this to listen to with my 5 year old daughter. I thought it was funny but she just didn't get the jokes.

Audible recommends this for children ages 7 and under but I think the humor is more appropriate for children ages 8 to 12.

This book is funny and well read, good for adults and older children.

Picture a world intricately entwined with our own, yet separate, pulsing with the raw energy and vivid color of Celtic myth come to life. Picture Albion.

A Grim and Depressing Tale

Overall
2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 03-19-05

This story has so many disasters befall the main character that I couldn't even finish it. After believable fantasy, the hero takes a journey that turns wildly fantastic and terrible. It never gets better. Too depressing for me.
