Publisher's Summary

Princess Celeste is bored to tears, and her brothers, Prince Jude and Prince Torrin, aren't doing much better.

In a palace where all they have to look forward to are endless games of croquet and barley-water soup for supper, they don't have much by way of excitement. Until the one night Torrin sees a light in a forgotten tower of the palace, and they meet a wonderful and mysterious aunt who unlocks a brand-new world of adventure they will never forget.

great story; sub-par narration

This was a fun adventure for a trio of royal children stuck in a boring life... or so they think. I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it for children - I think I would have loved it when I was into Half Magic and similar books.

The audiobook narration was sub-par; the narrator spoke far too slowly and Enunciated. Everything. Far. Too. Much. It was a bit painful to listen to at first. She also used very odd voices for some of the children, and southern accents for some of the Eep adults, which felt jarring in a fantasy story.

Fun Elementary Age Read

I had help reviewing this book... my 13, 11, and 9 year old kids read this one with me. They all thought is was a cute and fun short story. We agreed that the narrator did a great job with this book. It is geared toward the younger readers but I do believe that my 13 year old enjoyed it more then he would like to admit. It a great clean read for elementary age kids.

Story of cooperation and acceptance

This is the first book I’ve read/listened to by this author and I would listen to another. I will definitely let my 5 year old listen to it.
This book has a thread of fantasy, but is also a great story to teach lessons of cooperation, tolerance of differences, and respect for others. The royal children do not behave poorly, or argue.

This is the first book I’ve listened to by this narrator ( Lisa Hicks) and I would listen to another. She narrates with expression that would be engaging for kids without going over the top. She has different voices for the characters that are discernible.

There are no explicit sex scenes, excessive violence or swearing.
