An incredible swashbuckling adventure, set in a world where great airships ply the skies and there are unknown lands and strange creatures still to be discovered. You’ll love the characters, and the story has the drive and verve of a Saturday morning serial.
Reminiscent of Jules Verne and Edgar Rice Burroughs—with a touch of Robert Louis Stevenson—this is adventure writing at its finest. And with its cast of larger-than-life characters, it was just made for our full cast treatment.
This is the kind of classic writing that can be enjoyed by all ages.

Aza is far from beautiful. With pale skin and blood-red lips (not to mention her ungainly size), she is seen as odd, at best. But Aza does have one important trait in her favor: a voice of astonishing beauty. In the world of Ayortha, where singing is the main mode of communication, this gift is no small thing, and soon Aza finds herself rising at court, where her sudden good fortune brings not only unexpected opportunity but also unexpected danger.
Funny and moving, wise and 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—and an audiobook that has as much original music as a Broadway show!
When Merciless Marvin the Magnificent finds his way into Macy’s department store, he thinks he’s discovered the best deal a mouse could wish for. Soon Marvin and his pals Raymond the Rat and Fats the Fuse are cozily settled into a dollhouse in the toy department; before long they’ve even made friends with the store’s beloved Santa.
Then, to their dismay, Santa goes missing.
The world outside the store is dark, cold, and dangerous. But that won’t stop three brave mice. Marvin and his gang will risk whatever they must to crack the crime, rescue Santa, and save Christmas!
Full Cast’s first Marvin recording, The Great Cheese Conspiracy, won a Publisher’s Weekly “Listen Up” Award and the 2005 Golden Headset Award for Children’s Audio. Now our artistic director, Daniel Bostick, reprises his hilarious rendition of Marvin—and caps off the recording with a special bonus: the beloved poem “A Visit From St. Nicholas” as recited by Marvin himself!
School Library Journal said of this 2008 Audie Award Finalist "The full cast narration is brilliant."

It’s the Fourth of July, 1946, and eleven year old Norm Schmidt is as excited about it as any kid, especially with America swept up in the joyous optimism that followed the end of World War II. But before the celebrating can begin, there’s work to be done in his father’s butcher shop, and in a careless moment Norm suffers a tragic accident that could put an end to all his dreams.
But like the country he is part of, Norm is a fighter—the kind of kid who won’t let a simple thing like losing a hand keep him from trying to do the things he loves.
In this inspiring story—based closely on the childhood of her own husband—author MJ Auch reminds us what guts and grit mean, and how even a kid with only one hand can still grab life by the throat.
