About the Author:

Margaret Mahy lived in New Zealand and was internationally acknowledged as one of the most outstanding children’s writers of her day. She was the author of more than two hundred books for children of all ages, two of which received England's Carnegie Medal and others of which have garnered numerous citations from the American Library Association. She was also the recipient of an Order of New Zealand, the highest honor a citizen can receive. In 2006 she receivd the Hans Christian Andersen award for her contributions to international children's literature.

From AudioFile:

"When suddenly, on an ordinary Wednesday, it seemed to Barney that the world tilted and ran downhill in all directions, he knew he was about to be haunted again." So begins Mahy's classic story of an eight-year-old boy's struggle between family history and individual destiny. Richard Mitchley's supple voice and lively pacing combine to create a middle ground–neither wholly real nor entirely imaginary–where Mahy's characters weave their subtly shifting patterns of relationships imperceptibly changed by death and birth. This story and voice linger in the mind long after the tape is over. K.T.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
