Winner of both the Newbery and Carnegie medals, Sharon Creech enthralls children and young adults with humorous and original novels like Replay. Once upon a time, the Castle Corona soared majestically above the winding Winona River. In this glittering castle lived the family of King Guido: rich and royal and-spoiled. In the dense woods, far below these towering battlements lived two poor orphans who dreamed of living in the shimmering citadel. But when these young peasants find a pilfered pouch, they don't realize that its unique contents can unlock secrets and transform lives.

"From its opening lines--"Long ago and far away . . ."--listeners know they'll be treated to another beguiling tale by Sharon Creech. The story is populated by a spoiled royal family, two wise hermits who keep the family from being too shallow, and two peasant children who (at last) bring curiosity and introspection to the self-indulgent castle. Although the story may play out too slowly for some young listeners, Jennifer Wiltsie's narration perfectly matches the languid pace of the tale. Wiltsie carefully and skillfully finds each nuance of humor and irony in the evolution of the royal family. The varied voices of the servants who gently bring about this evolution will be the listeners' primary joy. K.C. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
