Description-
  • Aza is far from beautiful. With pale skin and blood-red lips (not to mention ungainly size), she is seen as odd, at best. But Aza does have one blessing: a voice of astonishing beauty. In Ayortha, where singing is the main mode of communication, this gift is no small thing, and soon Aza finds herself rising at court. But, as she will discover, unexpected good fortune can also bring unexpected danger... Funny and moving, wise as well as uplifting, Fairest represents New York Times bestselling author Gail Carson Levine at her finest. Composer-director Todd Hobin has crafted melodies for all the story's lyrics and songs, resulting in a unique listening experience -- an audiobook that has as much original music as a Broadway show!

About the Author-

Gail lives with her husband in New York's Hudson River Valley.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine What fun! A full-cast audio production is a great vehicle for presenting this fairy tale. Set in a land where writing songs and singing them is a highly admired skill, the story offers a combination of singing and speaking roles for a rich cast of characters. The skilled cast makes the most of their roles and appears to be having great fun. Enchanting melodies that range from the simple to the complex are provided by Todd Hobin. Sarah Naughton plays Aza, the homely and common maid with the uncommon voice. In typical fairy-tale fashion, she finds herself in precarious circumstances among the king, queen, handsome prince, nobles, and gnomes. Naughton's portrayal fully captures the paradigm of the sweet and unassuming girl who tries to please everyone she meets. J.E.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
