Description

Far away, in the land between the mountains, 12 Minnipin villages are tucked in the bends of the Watercress River. In their thatched, green-doored houses, Muggles and the other Minnipins of Slipper-on-the-Water live peacefully, with plenty to eat and no enemies to fear. Suddenly one night, Muggles sees a strange glow on the distant mountain top. When she tries to alert her neighbors, she is ignored. Everyone is busy cleaning, hoping Slipper-on-the-Water will win the fabled Gammage Cup as prize for the finest village. Finally, Muggles and four other Minnipins must leave the security of their home. High in the mountain, they will face a hideous band of invaders. The imaginative world of the Minnipins has become a favorite fantasy of children of all ages. With Christina Moore's colorful narration, each Minnipin provides part of the gentle lessons about the powers of individuality and courage.

Professional reviews

"Christina Moore superbly narrates this charming fantasy classic, depicting the peaceful, homogeneous, and predictable world of the Minnipins. Each main character has a unique voice and personality, which Moore develops through intonation, pacing, and inflection. We hear the characters develop confidence, trust their growing friendship, and feel their building courage as they work together. Moore also builds the tension, contrasting the inflexible leaders with the free-spirited individuals who choose to leave their village, rather than give up their creative spirit. In the inevitable battle between good and evil, as well as in the satisfying ending, Moore gently imparts lessons about individuality, courage, flexibility, and acceptance. W.L.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
