With vibrant intensity, Christopher Ashman narrates this steampunk adventure set in an alternate 1930s England. Twelve-year-old Christopher is an engineer's assistant who lives with the mechanical children created by the unscrupulous Mr. Absalom. When an accident reveals Christopher's true nature and a rival engineer kidnaps him, the other children run away to search for him. With his deep pitch and rich British accent, Ashman brings heart to the action-packed story, creating distinct voices for a wide range of characters. These include a gentle tone for the sympathetic Christopher; a nasal twang for the sly Absalom; a gruff growl for the belligerent genius, Cormier; and a supercilious delivery for the mechanical butler.
