Fiction • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

In an enchanted circus replete with wishing trees and ice gardens, dueling magicians and dark secrets, Jim Dale is his own one-man wonder. Dale makes palpable the sights and smells of the mysterious night circus, guiding us with his familiar voice and ensuring we never miss a fantastical detail. He's especially adept at creating distinct accents for the illusionists, fortune-tellers, contortionists, rêveurs, and other circus denizens who make up the extensive cast of characters; twins Poppet and Widget are special favorites. The book’s chapters jump back and forth in time and switch point of view, which can be confusing for even attentive listeners, but for those wanting to immerse themselves in the world of Le Cirque des Rêves, the audio journey is magical, indeed.
