The Green Ember (5/5 stars, currently priced at $13.97 or 1 Audible credit) is the perfect audiobook to make the miles fly by if you’ve got a long drive in the car and kids of varying ages. With a running time of just under eight hours, this one may even get you there and back again.
Heather and Picket are extraordinary rabbits with ordinary lives until calamitous events overtake them, spilling them into a cauldron of misadventures. They discover that their own story is bound up in the tumult threatening to overwhelm the wider world.
Kings fall, and kingdoms totter. Tyrants ascend, and terrors threaten. Betrayal beckons, and loyalty is a broken road with peril around every bend.
Where will Heather and Picket land? How will they make their stand?
One Amazon reviewer says:
“We read this book aloud as a family (taking turns reading and listening to the very well-done Audible book) and it is our very first unanimous, whole-family favorite (both boys and girls between ages nine and four)! This is what I’ve been waiting for–books that the parents love, the big kids love, the little kids love, the boys love, the girls love. And with characters that we want to be friends with, even characters we want to be like.”
