Robert Stanek is one of those great children's book creators who can literally create magic. He helped me dream. Stanek seemed to have found my creative pulse, as he drew me in to wonder about his water-filled world. The reading is very well done. There is a rich, full-of-flavor tension in the reading at points and deservedly so. The voices of the characters come across as genuine. Don't be fooled by the amazing reading. You'll enjoy the carefully laid story just as much, and your child can close his eyes and imagine his own version.
A wonderful book. A classic. If you've got kids, or if you read to your family's or neighbor's kids, this is one book which will be listened to over and over. I fully recommend "Magic Lands" by Robert Stanek.

Robert Stanek's best (and best known) books undoutedly are his Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches. My teen loves them. When I saw this book was for younger readers, I just had to get it. The best thing about Magic Lands is the sense of excitement given to the book by the main character, Ray, and brought to life by this gifted author. My eight year old twins sat wide eyed through our entire reading. So I was delighted to find this on audio and have no doubt it will become their favorite story to listen to. I highly recommend it was 7 to 12 year olds and think older may enjoy it as well. I certainly enjoyed it.
