Anne Ursu, read by Kirby Heyborne. Harper Audio, consumer digital download, $15.99 ISBN 978-0-06-212873-7
In Ursu's new spin on Hans Christian Andersen's classic fairy tale "The Snow Queen," youngsters Jack and Hazel are the best of friends until their unique bond is broken by dark magic, and Jack disappears with a mysterious woman who lives in the woods. Narrator Kirby Heyborne conveys an effective portrayal of the budding teens. Heyborne's youthful, subdued tone delivers the right amount of mystery and magic to captivate young listeners. As the story builds to its climax with Hazel searching for her missing friend, Heyborne narrates with a quiet intensity that captures every sentence perfectly. A memorable, entertaining, and engaging audiobook. Ages 8–12. A Walden Pond hardcover. (July)
