Life on Mount Eskel is hard, but for fourteen-year-old Miri the mountain is home, and she loves it. Then a messenger from the king arrives with a stunning announcement: The royal priests have divined that the prince’s bride-to-be must come from Mount Eskel. Soon Miri and the other girls must leave their homes for special training in how to be a princess—though, of course, only one of them will be chosen.

Full Cast Audio brings the same loving attention to Shannon Hale’s wildly popular Newbery Honor Book as they did to their Audie Award winning production of Shannon’s first novel, The Goose Girl. The gifted teenagers who portray the mountain girls add special credibility to the recording, which is further enhanced by FCA favorite Cynthia Bishop’s singing and chanting of the mountain wisdoms that open each chapter.

"This full-cast recording of Hale’s 2006 Newbery honor book reflects care, with an accomplished narrator and snatches of song that introduce each chapter."
    — Hornbook (Audio Review)
"The casting reveals special care and intelligence in that the voices give dimension to the characters that the story bears out, a remarkable vocal foreshadowing that is due, of course, to the actors' skill. This sweet story will primarily interest 10-14- year-old girls, but even boys may enjoy it (though they may not admit it)."
    — AudioFile Feb/Mar 2008
"Skilled acting and directing along with perfect music and editing make this production a wondrous experience. Simply excellent, all around."
    — SFFAudio
"Including more than 30 readers, this ambitious production features Jo D’Aloisio in the part of smart and spunky Miri, whose winsome voice reflects confusion over whether she is interested in life as a princess. ... Laura Credidio serves as the book’s narrator, and her softly modulated, upbeat voice reflects the folktale aspect of this historical-fantasy tale. Performer and composer Todd Hobin’s music adds a regal atmosphere, as does Cynthia Bishop’s exquisite a cappella singing. This book meshes perfectly with a full-cast performance,showcasing both the teen and adult voices and the music. "
