Publisher's Summary

When Anthony Walker bought five brass monsters at Morley Manor, he didn't suspect that they were real - or that thawing them out of their frozen sleep would pull him and his sister, Sarah, into a galaxy spanning adventure. But soon those two brave kids have to deal with monsters, aliens, giant frogs, a tragic angel- and an eerie trip to the land of the dead. Yet for all its madcap weirdness - for all its laughs and spooky thrills - at its heart Morley Manor is about the bonds that hold us together as families.

Fun!

This book was just fun to listen to. It was fast moving and I totally enjoyed the different character voices, it made them more realistic that way.

Loved it!

This is a great story for all ages! The writer has a great deal of imagination and tells a fantastic story. Also, he deals with ethical issues not normally found in children stories.

Excellent!

I fully enjoyed this story... and I don't have kids!! The production is well done, very entertaining, easy to listen to, well-'acted'. I highly recommend it for people with (and without) children!

Nice Family Story

This is a nice story to share as a family. It is funny and inventive. Sometimes it verges on the silly but that is just fine.
