Philip and Lucy discover that the city Philip has built using toys, books and household objects, has come alive. This is the account of their incredible adventures in those magical lands, where they meet characters from books and history, mythical beasts, and many other nice (and not so nice) people and creatures.As with all Edith Nesbit’s tales, The Magic City has generous helpings of humour, imagination and interesting ideas, as well as the over-arching story of how a boy and girl who have unwillingly become step-brother and sister eventually learn to like each other.A story that works on many levels and will be equally enjoyed by adults and children.
When I first listened to this, I only got into the first fifteen minutes of it before I couldn't stand it anymore and stopped the recording. A couple of years later, I didn't have anything else to listen to and came back to 'The Magic City'. I found that it was very pleasant to listen to and I really enjoyed it. Now I am looking forward to reading it for myself.
Ruth Golding (sp?) made this book come alive with her voice. She consistently did character voices and she is the sole reader all the way through. I Highly recommend this! And any other books she has read aloud.
