A Necklace of Raindrops: and Other Stories

Author: Joan Aiken

Narrator: Lizza Aiken

Unabridged: 1 hr 37 min

Format: Digital Audiobook

Publisher: Random House Audio

Genre: Children & Young Adults Fiction - Short Stories

Synopsis

Here are eight gloriously imaginative stories for eight satisfying sessions of bedtime reading. There’s a flying apple pie, a cat that’s bigger than an elephant, a house that lays an egg, storybook animals that leap out of their books at night, and a wealth of other wonderful characters and ideas, all with the colorful, dreamlike quality of the very best fairy tales.

Joan Aiken’s delicious prose is a joy to read aloud to very young listeners yet simple enough for the independent reader to savor on his or her own. Kevin Hawkes’s illustrations — nearly 60 of them — capture with great flair and fun the magical adventures and the triumph of the good over the bad.
