Publisher's Summary

12-year-old Aidan Errolson, comes from a long line of adventurers. His grandparents were among the first settlers of Corenwald's Eastern Frontier. His father had been one of the kingdom's greatest warriors. Aidan, on the other hand, lives the quiet, comfortable life, of a nobleman's son. He never has any real adventures, and that, he believes, is the one great injustice of his otherwise happy life.

All that will change the day he first hears the bark of the bog owl, and meets Dobro Turtlebane. Dobro is one of the feechiefolk, a tribe of half-civilized swamp dwellers who fight too much, laugh too loud, cry too easily, and smell just terrible. But another meeting on that remarkable day may change Aidan's life even more profoundly. Bayard the Truthspeaker arrives with a startling pronouncement: Aidan Errolson will grow to be the Wilderking, the long-prophesied wild man, who will come out of Corenwald's forests and swamps to lead the kingdom back to its former glory. There's just one question: Is Bayard the Truthspeaker a prophet or a madman? This initial installment in The Wilderking Trilogy is sure to capture the hearts of young and old, boys and girls alike.

a true hero story

bravery, humor, vivid descriptions, fully developed characters, excellent narration with voices and melodies to the few songs that would have been hard to imagine by reading the book alone. I loved it as much as my 7yo and 8 yo.

Very Enjoyable

This book is narrated by its author- and hs is very easy to listen too. He hid an excellent job in both the writing and performance.
The story it’s self is written at a middle grade level so kids can enjoy it. However it also makes an easy - but interesting - read for adults.
A word of warning - once I started I devoured the entire 3 Book series and wished for more. The story continues in each book so be prepared to get them all; but I believe you’ll enjoy the ride.

10 Stars!

If I could give 10 stars for this book, I would. Books read by the author are always my favorite, but this one exceeds them all. The author does a fabulous job when reading this book. I had heard this book described as a mix between CS Lewis fantasy and Mark twain; how true that is. This book was a delightful read. I cannot wait to read the next one, and then pass the series on to my son.

Fantastic

Would you consider the audio edition of The Bark of the Bog Owl to be better than the print version?

Yes.

What other book might you compare The Bark of the Bog Owl to and why?

It's like Mark Twain and C. S. Lewis got in a wrasslin' match.

What does Jonathan Rogers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He's got a great voice and did a wonderful job.

Any additional comments?

Get it. It's so good.
