Never turn the key while the music is playing.

Never pick up the box while the music is playing.

Never close the lid until the music has stopped.

The old music box, with its strict rules, has been carefully handed down through Leo's family for hundreds of years. Painted scenes of villages, mysterious forests, a castle on a hill and a queen in a long blue gown decorate its sides. An astounding secret is hidden beneath its gleaming black lid. Now it is Leo's music box, and although he respects the rules, his least favourite cousin, Mimi Langlander, does not. When the rules are broken, Leo's ordered life is changed forever as he and Mimi plunge together into a thrilling quest in the fantastic world of Rondo. Download and start listening now!

    " Dull and Boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 2/7/2014

    " Initially I was not enthralled with this book. All I could think was another Narnia, another Inkheart, another book where children are trapped in another world. Then I started to like all the fairy tale allusions, but then that got too repetitive and cutesy for me. Finally I fell under Rodda's spell. What a wonderful book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 1/27/2014

    " I just chose a random book off the library shelf in the juvenile section on my way out with a screaming kid. Hence, I was very excited to really like it and will read the series. "

    " Look past the cover! I do not like the cover and almost didn't read this as it looks creepy, dark, unpleasant. It's a lovely fairy tale with very little darkness! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 B | 10/29/2011

    " I read this mainly because I liked the idea of a world in a music box...not your typical doorway into another world. It's not the best book I've ever read, but it's not too bad either. "

    " Quite a good novel. I would rate it a 3 1/2 if I could.

    leo is definitely my fave character but I like the others too.

    It was an adventure to the max!

    I liked the fantasy part to it, though at times it overwhelmed me a bit.
