Ian Beck is the creator of many picture books for children and of the novel The Secret History of Tom Trueheart. He lives in England.From AudioFile:
The Trueheart clan has seven sons, six of whom are often called on to enter the Land of Stories and bring stories to an exciting conclusion. Tom, the youngest, and the only one not named Jack, worries that he lacks the bravery to carry on the family's tradition of bringing exciting exploits and happily-ever-after endings to the Land of Stories. Ian Beck has woven several well-known fairy tales into this novel, putting a new spin on some of our best-loved stories. John Curless narrates with flair, humor, and excitement. His smooth transitions from adventure to adventure and his facility with accents will keep listeners engaged in identifying the source tales.
