Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“What will the princesses of a very small kingdom do when they grow up? This audio series about a dozen sisters may answer that question, beginning with Clarice, whose passion has been studying swordplay. As Clarice masquerades as Clarence and sets out to sea, Emily Sutton-Smith has an opportunity to showcase a range of accents and personalities…Primarily for young adult audiences, the book introduces some serious issues, but Sutton-Smith maintains the light touch of the authors.” AudioFile
