Matt Addis narrates this expansive tale of chivalry and great deeds, a Dutch classic written in 1962 and recently translated into English. Tiuri, a young squire making his pre-knighthood vigil, cannot refuse a request for help from a mysterious stranger. Thus begins an adventure through dangerous forests, across wide rivers, and among people whose allegiances are uncertain. This episodic audiobook is longer than most modern children's stories, but Addis keeps listeners engaged using a smoothly paced style and a deep, expressive voice. His nuanced performance and attention to textual cues bring to life a complex world filled with tongue-twisting names, sweeping declarations, and heartfelt confessions. Using accents and speech patterns to help listeners follow the action, Addis conjures a multitude of delightfully distinct inhabitants. N.M.
