Quotes & Awards

  • “A full cast brings a ton of energy to this audiobook. The recording booth must be an exciting place for narrators who are portraying a medieval troubadour turned into a goose, a bumbling magician, a dastardly younger brother to the king, the king himself, a sorceress, and a band of young knights. Will these enthusiastic newbies to knightdom be able to return the kingdom of Byjovia to order? Kudos to the cast for making a hybrid work (part traditional novel/part graphic novel) into a seamless audio production. Through animation, inflections, and pauses, a coherent story line made from words, pictures, and thought bubbles comes together. Listeners can’t help but chuckle at the overlay of contemporary language abounding in slang and puns and admire the pluck and sensibilities of the characters. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
