Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this classic fantasy novel from author Michael Ende, small and insignificant Bastian Balthazar Bux is nobody's idea of a hero, least of all his own. Then, through the pages of an ancient, mysterious book, he discovers the enchanted world of Fantastica, and only Bastian himself can save the fairy people who live there. Shy, awkward Bastian is amazed to discover that he has become a character in the mysterious book he is reading and that he has an important mission to fulfill.

Review:

"In Ende's classic, Bastian Balthazar Bux is an unhappy, lonely boy who finds a mysterious book and is magically transported inside the pages of the thrilling story. In the world of Fantastica, Bastian becomes the hero, embarking on adventures and encountering dragons, giants, and talking beasts great and small. Listeners will take great pleasure in the narration of Gerard Doyle, who infuses the story with vitality. His rich, musical voice is entrancing, and he deftly creates unique voices for the cast of characters, including a variety of fantastical, imaginary creatures. Doyle's reading has a soft, otherworldly, bedtime-story quality about it, and this will easily convey listeners of all ages away to Fantastica. Ages 10 — up." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Synopsis:

In this classic fantasy novel, Bastian Balthazar Bux embarks on a wild adventure when he enters the magical world of Fantastica, a doomed land filled with dragons, giants, and monsters, and risks his life to save Fantastica by going on a very dangerous quest.
