Publisher's Summary

When David finally has a chance to climb the mountain behind his new home he has no idea he is about to meet a fabulous mythical creature. Even if he had known, who could have guessed that a Phoenix would turn out to be so stuffy, so pompous - and so utterly endearing? (To say nothing of its fondness for Aunt Amy's sugar cookies!) When the Phoenix decides to take a hand in David's education the adventures - and the hilarity - really begin. Alas, the wonderful visits to griffons, sea monsters, and banshees will come to a crashing halt if the scientist stalking the Phoenix is successful. A tale filled with high humor and deep humanity, this much-beloved classic springs to new life in a full cast recording that features the author himself as narrator.

OK for children 6-9

This is not for older children. My son who is 10 and I were very bored. It may be cute for younger children.

Loved It!

We listened to this in the car on the way to/from school. The kids would race to the car each day so we could resume the story.
