This is a truly beautiful story, a wonderful modern fairy tale. And it was read perfectly. The themes are heavy and melancholy, primarily dealing with loss, death and grief. But it was marvelously handled and easily accessible to the 2nd grader listening with me. And, in the end (and throughout), it was ultimately hopeful and empowering. We both loved every minute of it!

If you could sum up Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy in three words, what would they be?
magical exciting adventure
Who was your favorite character and why?
Ophelia, of course - she's the heroine
Which character – as performed by Jayne Entwistle – was your favorite?
Jayne did all the characters very well (one of the reasons the story is so good).
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
All the times Ophelia pushed past her fears to do what was right.
Any additional comments?
Jayne Entwistle is a great narrator, always making her characters come alive. In this book especially, she makes you root for the children (Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy) during their adventures.
