[Narrated by Cynthia Bishop and a Full-Cast] Princess Anidori-Kiladra of Kildenree was born with a word on her tongue and a secret magic. Though she is raised in luxury, she is never quite comfortable with who she is or what she is to become. Then she is sent on a journey to marry an unknown prince. The trip is difficult, and before it is finished all her expectations are overturned. Alone, friendless, stripped of her crown and her title, Ani must learn to make her own path in the world. Along the way, she just might learn to be a princess. Bold in concept, stunning in execution, ''The Goose Girl'' is one of the most spectacular debut novels of recent years. Now more than four dozen actors bring it to thrilling new life in this unabridged audio edition - a recording that will delight those who already love the book, and enthrall those who have not yet discovered it.

Shannon Hale is the author of six award–-winning young adult novels, including The Goose Girl and the bestselling Newbery Honor book Princess Academy. Austenland (soon to be a major motion picture) was her first book for adults, followed by The Actor and the Housewife and Midnight in Austenland. She and her husband co–wrote the acclaimed graphic novels Rapunzel's Revenge and Calamity Jack. They live with their four children near Salt Lake City, Utah.
Ani, the Princess of Kildenree, is a character in the Cinderella tradition, but her story of betrayal, strength, and resilience has several twists. When her handmaiden, Celia, plots to replace her--the resulting deception, stolen identity, and danger transform Ani into The Goose Girl. This counterpoint experience teaches her about loyalty, friendship, and eventually, love. A note of warning: The occasional violence and cruelty to animals urge caution for young listeners. Cynthia Bishop as the narrator and Erika Lustig as Princess Ani give especially good performances in this full-cast production, and musical cues add a nice accompaniment. The only distraction is the "voice" given to inanimate objects, such as the wind, which overstretches the plot. L.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
