A Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor Book and ALA Notable and Best of the Year in Young Adult Fiction, Howl’s Moving Castle by acclaimed fantasy writer Diana Wynne Jones was transformed into an Academy Award-nominated animated motion picture by Hayao Miyazaki. On a rare venture out from her step-mother’s hat shop, Sophie attracts the attention of a witch, who casts a terrible spell transforming the young girl into an old crone.
Spellbinding, and Beautifully Read
This is a truly compelling book, made even better by its narrator Jenny Sterlin. She is fast becoming one of my favorite readers. Many other reviews tell about this marvelous, magical story, so I won’t duplicate. Do listen for all of the excitement and atmosphere.
If you like her narration, try The Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie R. King. It begins the series of what becomes of Sherlock Holmes after he “retires”, and introduces a memorable new personality that takes him in a surprising direction.
iTunes Please also have this available as the movie
