Liesl & Po

Lauren Oliver, read by Jim Dale. HarperAudio, unabridged, digital download, 6 hrs., $15.99 ISBN 978-0-06-211119-7
This fairy tale centers on two children: Liesl, whose father died and who has been locked in the attic by her wicked stepmother, and Will, an orphan who works all day and night for a cruel wizard. A friendly ghost named Po befriends Liesl and helps her escape, while Will is forced to run away after accidentally giving a powerful magic potion to the wrong person. As they are escaping, Liesl and Po cross paths with Will, and they decide to join forces. Award-winning narrator Jim Dale brings his own brand of magic to the tale, narrating in the tones of an elderly and wise storyteller, while creating distinctive and memorable voices for the characters, including down-to-earth Liesl, the weaselly wizard, the icy Lady Premiere, the monstrous stepmother, and gentle Mo, a dimwitted but kindhearted guard who helps the children. This is an excellent audiobook for youngsters, whether they’re in riding in the car, reluctant readers, or fantasy lovers. Ages 8–12. A HarperCollins hardcover. (Oct.)
