Narrator Moira Quirk delivers all the passion of 11-year old Pippa, an orphan who tends horses near Athens. When the gods of Mount Olympus choose their winged horses and riders to compete in the race that determines Zeus's next steed, Pippa is surprised to learn that she has been called up. The stakes are high, as the winning jockey will get to live on Mount Olympus with the gods and the winning backer gets to be Zeus for a day. Pippa's meek yet determined voice perfectly fits her demeanor, while the sharp voices of the doubters who surround her create an excellent juxtaposition. Listeners, especially lovers of fantastical creatures, will enjoy this adventurous tale of bravery and perseverance. M.D. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2020]
