Barry Wolverton, read by Emrhys Cooper. Listening Library, unabridged, six CDs, 7.25 hrs. $40 ISBN 978-0-449-01479-0
Neversink is an island in the Arctic populated by seabirds called auks. They live a peaceful existence, ignoring the forward-thinking ideas of one auk, a puffin named Lockley, and his friends, a walrus named Egbert and a hummingbird named Ruby. But their peaceful life is shattered when Rozbell, an evil owl, gains control of the Owl Parliament, takes over Neversink, and oppresses the auks, leaving Lockley and his friends to save the day. Emrhys Cooper brings engaging and lively narration to the story, and his creative character voices—particularly the droopy, pontificating tones of walrus Egbert and the tough English accents of Rozbell’s two henchmen. Ages 8–12. A Walden Pond hardcover. (Sept.)
