Beyond the everyday world of King's Cross Station lies an island of oddities and magic. When their infant Prince is stolen, the island's magical residents form a team to rescue him. The only trouble is, they can't get to him for nine years.

Light, funny, magical listen

This was a wonderfully entertaining story. The narrator does an excellent job bringing out the humor and magic of the characters and story without being cloying or childish. The plot is somewhat predictable, but filled with so many imaginative, warm, odd, and funny moments it does not seem to matter. If you enjoy Roald Dahl, you may want to try it. This is a light and simple tale well worth the listen!
