Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy

Karen Foxlee, read by Jayne Entwistle. Listening Library, unabridged, five CDs, 6.5 hrs., $35 ISBN 978-0-8041-6834-2
In Foxlee’s take on “The Snow Queen,” 11-year-old Ophelia Jane Worthington-Whittard, who is still grieving her mother’s death, travels to an unnamed snowy city where her father has taken a job at a strange museum. There, Ophelia meets a boy in a locked room. The Marvelous Boy has been a prisoner of the Snow Queen for years, and he asks Ophelia to help him save the world. Narrator Entwistle shines in this entertaining audio edition. With an accented voice, steady pacing, and a crisp delivery, Entwistle ably captures the magic and fun of Foxlee’s tale. The voices Entwistle lends Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy are spot-on, while she also produces a host of distinct and appropriate voices for the book’s other characters. Ages 8-12. A Knopf hardcover.
