Publisher's Summary

Max fears that his family will disapprove of his friendship with Darla, a common girl from the village outside his uncle's fortress walls. That's why they meet secretly to read together from an old book that Darla found in a dusty room near the fortress laundry where she works. They read about a lost lake and feel adventurous when they slip out of the fortress to go swimming there; but the trouble begins when they find that, in the meantime, the fortress has been sealed and they can't get back in. It's lucky that they have the book with them, to guide them through the many dangers that await them on their way back home...or perhaps it is the book that is the source of their troubles. In the end, it is the power of the friendship that Darla and Max have forged and their courage that see them through a series of breathtaking adventures. Written by an award-winning author and his teenage son, this book is a light-hearted book for listeners of any age.

A Thrilling Adventure through Alternate Universes!

Would you consider the audio edition of Have Book - Will Travel to be better than the print version?


What about Barbara Benjamin-Creel’s performance did you like?

Barbara Benjamin-Creel did a fine job and gave every character a different voice.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

This is a story written for teens, but I think it could be enjoyable for adults and younger kids too. Max is the over-protected son of royalty and Darla is the daughter of an uneducated working class family living in a medieval world. Their forbidden friendship takes them to strange new places where they meet many dangers and even stranger people.

The book is well done, but I'd have liked more detail in some places and maybe an epilogue as well. It's great that it was written by a father and son.

A Grand Adventure

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely, especially my friends with children/teens. This was great storytelling by both the author and chosen narrator.


Who was your favorite character and why?

I'd have to say both Max and Darla. They were wonderful in spirit throughout the piece each holding the other up when situations seemed lost.


Have you listened to any of Barbara Benjamin-Creel’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I've added her to my favorites list. Her performance was fabulous. Really great storytelling.


Any additional comments?

I received a copy of this from the narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. Thank you!
