Ghost Knight

Cornelia Funke, read by Elliot Hill. Listening Library, unabridged, four CDs, 5 hrs., $30 ISBN 978-0-307-58334-5
When he’s sent away to boarding school, Jon Whitcroft isn’t too happy about it—and that’s before he starts seeing ghosts and the ghosts start seeing him. But when the ghosts begin to plot against Jon, the only person he can turn to his newfound friend Ella. Now Jon and Ella must investigate an ancient murder and summon the ghost of Knight Longspee. Elliot Hill narrates in a crisp British accent that certainly makes listening enjoyable. He captures Jon’s tone and attitude throughout and deftly embodies the angst and frustration of the reticent youth. Additionally, Hill creates a host of unique voices for the book’s assorted characters and transitions well between prose and dialogue. And while the voices he lends the female characters are less varied, they remain believable and appropriate. Ages 8–12. A Little, Brown hardcover. (May)
