Children Ages 10+ • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Launching the Chronicles of the Red King series, Nimmo takes listeners on an exciting adventure featuring Timoken, the young African prince who will become the Red King, who first appeared in her Charlie Bone series. John Keating easily elicits listeners’ sympathy as Timoken and his sister, Zobayda, journey across Africa and Europe to find a new home when their parents are murdered and their kingdom is overrun. As each royal sibling discovers magical gifts, listeners will feel their wonder and awe. Timoken’s new friends from France, Britain, and Castile also allow Keating to exhibit a wide variety of accents and speech patterns, creating a fun listening experience. Listeners brand new to Nimmo can enjoy this magical journey without having read about Charlie Bone. J.M. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2011]
