About the Author:

Alan Garner was born and still lives in Cheshire, an area which has had a profound effect on his writing and provided the seed of many ideas worked out in his books. His fourth book, 'The Owl Service' brought Alan Garner to everyone's attention. It won two important literary prizes - The Guardian Award and the Carnegie Medal - and was made into a serial by Granada Television. It has established itself as a classic and Alan Garner as a writer of great distinction.

From AudioFile:

When the four Watson children go into a ruined church in a deserted neighborhood in Manchester, England, they enter the strange world of Elidor, a land being overrun by an evil power. The children reluctantly become the guardians of Elidor's treasures--a sword, a stone, a spear, and a cauldron--and return with them to their twentieth-century world. Now the Watsons, as well as Elidor, are threatened. Garard Green, a seasoned audiobook narrator, gives the children convincing childlike voices and varies tone and phrasing to effectively communicate their emotions, as well as their words. As the Watsons courageously fight off the evil that so relentlessly pursues them, Green makes the unbelievable seem all too believable, wrapping the listener in the magical, sinister atmosphere of Garner's well-crafted fantasy. C.R.A. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
