Devoted to her brother and sister. Thinks Michael is deeply weird. Will fight anyone who says so. Secretly threw Michael's glasses in the toilet, twice.

A great story. I hurried and finished the other 2 Books of Beginning narrated by Jim Dale. He is the BEST book narrator I've come across. Honestly, he could read the phone directory and make it interesting. I loved the Harry Potter series and am just now finishing out the Peter and the Starcatcher series. His presentation of the voices is wonderful.
You will definitely want to read these books in order. Many things in the 2nd book refers to events in the first, and the third book is just a continuation. Lots of action, good character development, good guys and bad guys. A good series for young and old alike.

Great for fans of Harry Potter! A similar magic adventure, and also narrated by Jim Dale like the Harry Potter audiobooks. One of my favorite children's series, you will love the characters.

Great story, made better by Jim Dale, the reader from the Harry Potter series of audiobooks. Witches, wizards, dwarves, crazy monsters with swords and time travel! Doesn't get any better than that!

we loved the narration by Jim Dale, the Harry Potter narrator. Good story - it grew on us as we listened. Strong family theme. My 12-year-old son really enjoyed it.

This book kept my 3 children 13, 11, 10 "silent" on our 4 hour car trip! It's a good one.

What a wonderful new fantasy series! It's so well written--has all the right elements. 3 children on a quest for their parents, books of knowledge, strong supporting characters and a terrific "baddie" too. I loved listening to this cd--the same fellow who did the reading for all the audio Harry potter cd's, Jim Dale, did the reading on this as well. All in all, the start of one terrific new series--I'll be looking forward to the next one for sure!
