The Dragon of Doom
Moongobble and Me: Book 1
by Bruce Coville
When an almost-magician named Moongobble and his talking toad, Urk, move into the abandoned cottage near Edward’s home, it seems like a dream come true. After all, Edward has been longing for some excitement.
Alas, Moongobble still has a lot to learn about magic (most of his spells just turn things into cheese) and all too soon his dreams of becoming a magician are in danger. Edward will do anything to save his friend’s magic, even face the dreaded Dragon of Doom!
Funny and suspenseful, seasoned with original music and spiced with Bruce Coville’s special brand of wackiness, this enchanting recording is sure to cast a spell of delight on the entire family.
“Rich in dialogue, the story suits its full-cast treatment… Each character is played with gusto by a different person making this more of a performance than a simple reading.” — School Library Journal
“If you’ve listened to more than one audiobook you can understand how important the narration is to the story and the overall presentation… Sparkes narration is so impressive you find yourself listening in awe as he performs line after line, chapter after chapter.” — Audiobook Cafe, Aug 2004
“The fun-filled story is brought to life by a full cast… an excellent job of providing unique voices for each character.” — Chicago Parent
“The story is narrated by young actor Ryan Sparkes, who gives an enthusiastic performance as Edward. His youthful exuberance carries the innocence of a bygone age and may remind older listeners of the sort of boy heroes that populated late-50s and early-60s children’s films, or, say, “Leave It to Beaver.” This energy adds to the Coville’s light-handed humor.” — AudioFile, Feb 2005
