Princess Anidori-Kiladra of Kildenree was born with a word on her tongue and a secret magic. Though she is raised in luxury, she is never quite comfortable with who she is or what she is to become. Then she is sent on a journey to marry an unknown prince. The trip is difficult, and before it is finished all her expectations are overturned. Alone, friendless, stripped of her crown and her title, Ani must learn to make her own path in the world. Along the way, she just might learn to be a princess. 

Bold in concept, stunning in execution, The Goose Girl is one of the most spectacular debut novels of recent years. Now more than four dozen actors bring it to thrilling new life in this unabridged audio edition—a recording that will delight those who already love the book, and enthrall those who have not yet discovered it.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Get ready for a fine adventure tale full of danger, suspense, surprising twists, and a satisfying conclusion. The engaging plot can certainly carry the tale, but Hale's likable, introspective heroine makes this also a book about courage and justice in the face of overwhelming odds.”

    Booklist

  • “A fine adventure tale full of danger, suspense, surprising twists, and a satisfying conclusion…This also a book about courage and justice in the face of overwhelming odds.”

    Booklist

  • “A full-cast production voiced by over four dozen actors brings this well-known Grimms fairy tale to life, albeit it with a modern and magical twist—This tale of courage and perseverance is a listening delight.”

    School Library Journal

  • “More magic, drama, and a far stronger princess than the original…A beautiful coming of age tale, filled with magic and self-discovery. Ms. Hale manages to take a brief, fairly well-known fable and weaves an impressive, lush story that is completely irresistible.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Brittani | 2/18/2014

    " Though this a a young adult book, I really enjoyed it. I like the mix of mystical. I will for sure have my daughters read this when they are old enough. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Shana | 2/15/2014

    " The story contains some minor differences from the Brothers Grimm version I grew up with, but overall, it follows the story fairly close. This story has just enough suspense in it that it kept me turning pages. I recommended this book to my family, and now my parents are both reading it. I think guys could read this book without feeling that it is too "girly," because there isn't a ton of romance in it. (There is a little romance, but not as much as I expected). I enjoyed reading it. "
