Description

Young Arabel's life is changed forever when her father, a taxi driver, brings home an injured bird he finds in the street. This wacky raven eats everything in sight, answers the telephone by squawking "Nevermore!" and causes chaos wherever he goes--but Arabel loves her new feathered friend, whom she names Mortimer.

Professional reviews

"This audio collection contains the first three of Joan Aiken's tales about Arabel and her raven, Mortimer. Their silly antics and predicaments will entertain young and old alike. Sneha Mathan's performance is a real treat. She brings all the characters to life with a voice that makes each personality unique. Arabel's mother's voice goes from exasperation with Mortimer to praise for the raven's wisdom each time he saves the day. Arabel's voice is wise beyond her years and a constant calm in the midst of the havoc. And Mortimer's every squawk of "Nevermore" contains mountains of humor and meaning. One caveat: Listeners may want to take a break between stories; the silliness may tire them out! N.E.M. 2010 Audies Finalist (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
