In Ende’s classic, Bastian Balthazar Bux is an unhappy, lonely boy who finds a mysterious book and is magically transported inside the pages of the thrilling story. In the world of Fantastica, Bastian becomes the hero, embarking on adventures and encountering dragons, giants, and talking beasts great and small. Listeners will take great pleasure in the narration of Gerard Doyle, who infuses the story with vitality. His rich, musical voice is entrancing, and he deftly creates unique voices for the cast of characters, including a variety of fantastical, imaginary creatures. Doyle’s reading has a soft, otherworldly, bedtime-story quality about it, and this will easily convey listeners of all ages away to Fantastica. Ages 10–up. (Mar.)
