"Lorelei King is a talented narrator whose superb creation of whimsical characters is beautifully done." - Audiofile Magazine
Petra Kronos has a simple, happy life. But it's never been ordinary. She has a pet tin spider named Astrophil who likes to hide in her snarled hair and give her advice. Her best friend can trap lightning inside a glass sphere. Petra also has a father in faraway Prague who is able to move metal with his mind. He has been commissioned by the prince of Bohemia to build the world's finest astronomical clock. Petra's life is forever changed when, one day, her father returns home - blind. The prince has stolen his eyes, enchanted them, and now wears them. But why?
I love working on this enchanting and otherworldly book - and who wouldn't like voicing a mechanical spider?
