Summary

Summary

Curious, pin-bright Oona Britt dreams of setting sail with her ship’s captain father for a life of excitement on the wild waves. She has read stories of a magical creature – the Nardoo – who swims through the stars at night, and stows away on whaling boat the Plucky Leopard for an adventure full of myths and marvel among the ice-caps.

In her second outing, Matilda Woods has crafted an enchanting, charming story of bravery on the ice-tipped ocean.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Stephanie Foxley whisks listeners onto an ice-capped ocean, introducing them to Oona Britt and the chilly waters she calls home. Foxley gives Oona, the unwanted daughter of a lauded sea captain, notes of childlike innocence in her voice. Eventually, her tone shifts to calm resolve when Oona’s bravery and intrigue lead her to stow away on her father’s ship, the Plucky Leopard. Voicing the novel’s entire cast, Australian-born Foxley ensures that even lesser known characters—like Prince Manfred of Turnip Town—are given distinct tones and tempos, setting each apart from the rest. Listeners both young and old are sure to enjoy Foxley’s expert narration paired with Woods’s charming story.” Audiofile
