Noble Prince Jen is the one person that his father, King Ta'i, trusts enough to send on a mission to the legendary kingdom of Tien-Kuo. The prince eagerly begins his quest bearing only enormous pride and humble gifts. From the onset, however, the young ruler marches headlong into misfortune, miscreants, and unexpected adventure. Separated from his faithful servant, the prince finds himself fending off murderers, falling prey to trickery, and searching for a village girl who plays a magic flute. But it isn't until he faces his most challenging personal trial that the heroic traveler fully realizes the astonishing power hidden in each humble gift. Steven Crossley's narration of Newbery Medal-winner Lloyd Alexander's remarkably inventive tale delivers all the mystery and magic that accompany the prince on his high adventure. A Parents' Choice Award-winner, this book is also a Booklists' Top of the List Fiction Award-winner. For another adventure by this wonderful author, listen to The Iron Ring.

Professional reviews

"The kindhearted, inexperienced young prince leaves his palatial home in the company of a small army, but he still manages to fall into one misadventure after another. He encounters good and evil souls, all of which are superbly portrayed by narrator Steven Crossley. From the clear, formal tones of Jen's father, the king, to the gruff, villainous growls of a corrupt overlord, Crossley demonstrates an in-depth appreciation for each personality. The smooth transitions between the story narration and the speaking parts are equally exceptional, as is the humor that he creates with his vocal exaggerations. His reading is perfectly suited to the young audience for which the story is written. J.J.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
