When an almost-magician named Moongobble and his talking toad, Urk, move into the abandoned cottage near Edward's home, it seems like a dream come true. After all, Edward has been longing for some excitement.
Alas, Moongobble still has a lot to learn about magic (most of his spells just turn things into cheese) and all too soon his dreams of becoming a magician are in danger. Edward will do anything to save his friend's magic, even face the dreaded Dragon of Doom!
Funny and suspenseful, seasoned with original music and spiced with Bruce Coville's special brand of wackiness, this enchanting recording is sure to cast a spell of delight on the entire family.
Dragons aren't such bad creatures, are they? Bruce Coville turns fantasy on its ear in this story of Edward, an apprentice to a sorcerer of mediocre abilities. In order to help his mentor, Edward faces a rather underwhelming dragon, among other adventures. The story is narrated by young actor Ryan Sparkes, who gives an enthusiastic performance as Edward. His youthful exuberance carries the innocence of a bygone age and may remind older listeners of the sort of boy heroes that populated late-50s and early-60s children's films, or, say, "Leave It to Beaver." This energy adds to the Coville's light-handed humor. Also featured in the cast are Robert Steingraber as Moongobble the Magician, David Baker as Urk, the talking toad, and Sam Goldsman as the Rusty Knight.
