Goblin Secrets

William Alexander, read by the author. Simon & Schuster Audio, unabridged, four CDs, 5 hrs., $19.99 ISBN 978-1-4423-6303-8
Young Rownie is on a quest to find his actor brother, who disappeared from the town of Zombay, a place where acting is outlawed. His search finds him joining a troupe of goblin actors who teach him things about the world he will need in his journey. As a narrator, William Alexander turns in a solid performance. He reading is well paced. He lends drama to his young adult novel and ably creates distinctive character voices. However, his narration doesn’t always capture the tone of the book. His voice is soft and slightly nasal and he sometimes overpronounces words—and this will prevent some listeners from getting lost in the fantasy. Ages 8–12. A Margaret K. McElderry hardcover. (Jan.)
