“And as you sleep the cold reluctance of your virgin heart shall spread to those who surround you, until ice is formed over every growing thing, encasing it in its ruthless grasp; an ice that cannot be broken, but shall only melt with the bestowal of true love’s first kiss.”And with that Noelle waved her wand carved from the horn of a unicorn over the head of Princess Elise. As she did so all of the fairies vanished, and the hall was once more plunged into darkness.”From L. M. Roth, the author of the Adventures of Abelard series, the Quest For the Kingdom series, and Disenchanted In the Land of Dreams Come True, comes a romantic fairy tale bubbling with humor and sweetness. In the Kingdom of Columba all of the eligible maidens have been assembled for a contest. The prize? The hand of Thomas, the unmarried Prince whom all of the maidens long to wed. All that is, but one; Elise, the fairest of them all. But when a fairy curses her on their wedding day a royal dilemma presents itself; how do you wake a woman who doesn’t love you with true love’s first kiss? Prince Thomas sets forth on a desperate quest to the four corners of the kingdom to seek counsel from the Wise Women to find a way to win her heart and break the curse.A retelling of Sleeping Beauty, Arise My Love The Princess Who Fell Asleep is the first volume in The Princess Who... series, a collection of stand alone romantic fairy tales written for modern Princesses. Books in the series contain Volume 1 Arise My Love the Princess Who Fell Asleep, Volume 2 Beware My Lady the Princess Who Would Not Wed, Volume 3 Come Back My Lord the Princess Who Loved Too Much, and Volume 4 Dare Not My Liege the Princess Who Passed the Test.
Just when it seems that there cannot possibly be another twist to the Harry Potter tale, Stephen Fry dons his haughtiest and naughtiest tones to bring Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone to vibrant life on audio. Harry Potter has spent the first 10 years of his life at the mercy of the dreadful Dursleys--the aunt, uncle and fat, spoilt brat of a cousin who reluctantly gave him a home after the death of his mother and father. But on his 11th birthday Harry discovers that he is no ordinary boy, and despite the best efforts of his hideous relatives he escapes to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to begin his new life as a trainee wizard. And the rest, as they say, is history... As Harry battles against the evils thrown in his path, Stephen Fry injects the proceedings with a wry, dry and extremely contagious humour that perfectly suits the tale, wringing out the best in Harry and his cohorts as they get to grips with their new lives at the sharp end of Hogwarts. Fry's innate upper-class drone is perfectly suited to the telling of this most magical tale, cracking into the high-pitched squawking of Hermione the swat, or the gentle tones of the firm but fair Dumbledore, or the evil sniping of slimey Snape at precisely the right moments, adding further atmosphere and intensity to the story Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is a fine story and much has been written about its success but until you have heard Fry's cracking reading of this most magical of stories then you simply haven't lived. As with any audio book, this one is perfect for car journeys and an ideal way of introducing reluctant readers to the magic that is Harry Potter. (Age 9 and over) --Susan Harrison
