Reviews

Starred Review. Gr 5-9-Charlie Fletcher's sequel (2008) to Stoneheart (2007, both Hyperion) is another fast-paced saga of warring statues in an alternate London. George, 13, and his sidekick Edie, with the help of the statue, The Gunner, fight to establish peace among the warring statues and the humans. The evil Walker kidnaps The Gunner and imprisons him under the city, where he has buried the bodies of several girls and women from whom he has stolen heart stones. The Gunner must fight his way to the surface and return to his plinth before midnight or suffer death as a statue. Meanwhile, George must fight and win three "duels" or die. While all this is transpiring, Edie is captured by The Walker and is forced to "glint" or see the past for him. Actor Jim Dale does a fabulous job of narrating the story, giving it an immediacy that is arresting. He seamlessly slips between characters' voices, giving each one a unique persona. Suspenseful music opens and closes the story, adding a nice touch to an extremely well-done performance. Listeners will be able to more fully understand the action taking place in this volume after reading/listening to the first book. A fine purchase, especially for libraries that circulate the print version.-Kathy Miller, Baldwin Junior High School, Baldwin City, KS Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information
