9780006724162: The Midnight Folk (Lions)

A famous classic tale, and the first book of adventures featuring Kay Harker. Described by The Times as one of the greatest children's books ever written, The Midnight Folk is an acclaimed fantasy written by the poet John Masefield (Poet Laureate from 1930 to 1967). Life is very dull for orphan Kay Harker under the discipline of his governess, Miss Sylvia Daisy. But one night, woken by Nibbins the cat, he begins a magical quest to recover the long-lost Harker family treasure. But this treasure is also sought by the villainous Abner Brown using magic to pursue his evil ends. If Kay is to reach it first, he will need all the help that he can get from the midnight folk. Complete and unabridged audio book - 6 CDs - 6 hours 45 minutes.

Review:

Richard Mitchley relishes the glorious rhythms of Masefield's prose, essential to a convincing reading of fantasy. --The Times

These new recordings are, I think, phenomenal. It is all achieved in a virtuoso display and the one actor doing everything enables tight and effective dramatic timing. These recordings will appeal to all and I heartily recommend them. Indeed, listening to The Box of Delights on the train just before Christmas and travelling into work I found myself delighted at delays to my journey. --Masefield Society Journal

These new recordings are, I think, phenomenal. It is all achieved in a virtuoso display and the one actor doing everything enables tight and effective dramatic timing. these recordings will appeal to all and I heartily recommend them. --J M Society Journel
