Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Cassandra Morris, Peter McGowan

Children Ages 10+ • 4.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Narrator Cassandra Morris picks up the lively tone set by the musical introduction and builds on it with an enchanting performance. After the “unicorn incident,” young Pip Bartlett, who speaks to animals, is sent to Cloverton, South Georgia, to spend summer with her aunt to keep her out of trouble. But Pip finds herself immersed in adventures because Aunt Emma is a vet of magical creatures. Morris demonstrates great control and versatility in tone, pitch, and voice, effectively capturing the humor and personality of each character. Variety in cadence and volume skillfully conveys the spirit and emotions of the young protagonist. Peter McGowan is the voice of Jeffrey Higgleston, the author of Pip’s “bible”—GUIDE TO MAGICAL CREATURES. McGowan’s even, authoritative narration perfectly complements Morris’s dynamic performance and makes for an entertaining listen. M.F.
