"This whimsical tale of the birth of the seasons is a great read-aloud. It is full of expressive language and the good versus evil that young children love to hear....Highly recommended." (Library Media Connection)

The effort involved is not proportional to outcome

Would you try another book from Mary Lister and/or Ellen Verenieks?

From a book store, but not from Audible.

Has Winter King, Summer Queen turned you off from other books in this genre?


Would you be willing to try another one of Ellen Verenieks’s performances?

If I could ever hear one I may know the answer to this question.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I haven't gotten to see or hear the book yet. I look forward to the opportunity.

Any additional comments?

This audio book program was a huge time sucker. It doesn't work.
