Meet Selma of the Rin-Run Royals, a clever little girl who is spoiled to the core. One day Selma stumbles upon a band of colorful marionettes, and gets more than she bargained for. The remarkable Squickerwonkers of the fabulous Squickershow are about to teach Selma that she'll not always get her way. Evangeline Lilly is best known for her work as an actress, but her foremost passion has always been writing. This book is her first published work. Brilliantly narrated by Sylvester McCoy (Doctor Who, The Hobbit), this eccentric and visually stunning cautionary tale will appeal to adults and children alike.

The poetic story, the presentation voice, and the music.
Selma of course, girls cannot be spoiled nor can their quests.
I really enjoyed the timing to the music.
A new bar has been set.
It's so short everyone should give it a go,
Tried a bit less to be cleverly weird and tried a bit more to bring out a character to like.
Noise. Couldn't quite hear what was being said sometimes over sound effects and through accents.
Try it - it will only take a few minutes - and it might press your buttons.
Greatest children's book!
That I could read this to my daughter and I could also sit down and read it by myself if I wanted. It is great for all ages!
I have not but this one has held a high standard! Sylvester did an amazing job!
Evangeline Lilly did a wonderful job! Well worth the wait and cannot wait to read more about The Squickerwonkers!
yeah, b/c it's totally sweet
introduces the human condition to kids
accents were awesome
the ending left me wanting more
looking forward to the sequels
Something about yourself!
Somewhere in the middle.
McCoy's performance is charming, exuberant and delightfully over the top. I'm sure children of all ages will love it.
It's very short, so, yes.
Evangeline Lilly has written a sweet, little fairy story here which McCoy performs theatrically (and I mean that in a good way). It's a shame, then, that it has to compete to be heard in places with the multitude of background noises and music that have been layered on top of it. Turning the background noise down in the mix would improve this piece significantly.
FREE FOR ANYONE
