    Description

    The Ickabog is coming....

    A mythical monster, a kingdom in peril, an adventure that will test two children’s bravery to the limit. Discover a brilliantly original fairy tale about the power of hope and friendship to triumph against all odds, from one of the world’s best storytellers. 

    The kingdom of Cornucopia was once the happiest in the world. It had plenty of gold, a king with the finest moustache you could possibly imagine, and butchers, bakers, and cheesemongers whose exquisite foods made a person dance with delight when they ate them. 

    Everything was perfect - except for the misty Marshlands to the north, which, according to legend, were home to the monstrous Ickabog. Anyone sensible knew that the Ickabog was just a myth to scare children into behaving. But the funny thing about myths is that sometimes they take on a life of their own. 

    Could a myth unseat a beloved king? Could a myth bring a once happy country to its knees? Could a myth thrust two children into an adventure they didn’t ask for and never expected?  

    If you’re feeling brave, immerse yourself in this audiobook to find out....

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, a PDF including full-color illustrations from the winning artists of The Ickabog Illustration Competitions run by Hachette Children’s and Scholastic will appear in your library along with the audio.

    Charmant conte pour enfant

    La performance et l'histoire s'accordent parfaitement pour tisser un moment délicieux. Le format sous forme de conte le rend accessible aux plus jeunes tout en donnant une expérience jouissante et nostalgique aux plus grands. J. K. Rowling sait vraiment construire des histoires même si le départ ne laisse pas présager une histoire aussi riche. L'enfant en moi en demande plus.

    Une tres bonne surprise !

    Je m’attendais à un simple conte enfantin et j’ai trouvé bien plus ! Une véritable métaphore de l’autoritarisme et une belle leçon philosophique sur la morale, le devoir et la vérité.
    Je recommande !

    I love everything about this book

    The story, characters and the reading performance are very pleasant and I enjoy this book very much. It is supposed to be for kids but subtile aspect of the story makes it enjoyable for adults also!

    Oh, dear...

    I loved Harry Potter and have revisited the books and movies many times over. And I adore Stephen Fry. But I didn't like this book.

    It starts as a rather heavy-handed treatise on class differences in society, showcasing how people with power can talk themselves into ignoring their feelings and thus justify being unfair, or worse, for their own comfort. It may change course further on, but right now I just can't take any more of the issues I hear about in the news every day. So many of my favorite fiction authors have turned their novels into pulpits, addressing some societal issue they feel strongly about. I find I usually agree with their position, but really wish they would continue to create fictional worlds where we all can take a break from the bleakness and cruelty of the world as it exists right now.

    The worst thing here is that the story is told rather than shown, and the humor, charm, and deep characterizations that I fell in love with in the world of Potter are definitely MIA. I expect I will be in the minority with this review, but another seven hours is more than I can manage. Did not finish and returned.

    JK Rowling + Stephen Fry = 100x a listen

    First off, JKR seems to understand that adults want to listen to kids story lines. And I absolutely adore her for that, as well as philanthropically and as a brilliant creative mind.
    Secondly, Stephen Fry did actually read some of the Harry Potter books but audible does not have his recordings. He is the number one reader for JK Rowling, imo. There is no one better. Pay him a million dollars.

    No fun

    Ickabog starts out promising with JK’s charming writing. THEN the body count builds and builds with never ending details of a government official’s corruption and malfeasance. It just goes on and on and on and on and on! Around chapter 40ish things FINALLY start getting hopeful and the book ends quickly after that. Maybe if the narration focused much more on the lives of the characters I ACTUALLY cared about rather than the villain, I may have enjoyed it more. Maybe if the villain was interesting at all, I would have enjoyed it more.

    Most of the book focused on the villain’s acts of villainy rather than the hero’s character development. The characters who are good in the beginning of the book are still good in the end with very little growth. The characters who started out bad were still bad in the end with no depth or intrigue. I didn’t have any investment in ANY of them because they were all shallow ghosts- barely a whisper of someone I could root for or someone I could relate to. It’s a classic example of “telling rather than showing” -SUPER DUPER disappointing.

    Fantastic story and story telling

    I absolutely loved this audio. We listened to it as a family and it kept not only myself, but my children engrossed. The story teller voice is also very pleasing. 10/10 would buy again.

    Guliver’s Travel?

    JK Rowling is a great story teller. But it seemed to be a political satire. The phrase “ I know how to destroy him. I’ll ruin his reputation” was very much the 2020 cancel culture. I’m sure the symbolism in this story will be analyzed by everyone.

    Well worth a listen.

    I enjoyed the story. The characters were well done. And Stephen Fry gave a marvelous performance.
    There is some violence, but no sex or language issues that I caught.

    Delightful Fantasy

    To my surprise this delightfully witty fantasy was weaved with classic morals & lessons. Throughout the darkest chapters of this captivating tale, the reader is able to hope in truth and honor. It is a tale that should be told throughout the generations and read to children around the world. It belongs with other classic tales such as Peter Pan, Hansel & Gretel, and Little Red Riding Hood. Fun. Adventurous. Heroic.

    40 chapters of despair

    I love JK Rowling. This would have been a beautiful short story. It was 40 chapters of despair, murder, children dying, and people accepting the status quo until the protagonists had any response. Cut out 20 chapters of descriptive evil and the ending would have felt balanced. Not a favorite and I will not let my kids listen to it.

    Simply Incredible

    The story fits perfectly at the time... It is a story for adults and kids alike and the message is loud, clear and important!

    Let your kids listen to it, let them read it with an open heart and let them soak in the magic!

    I absolutely loved it! Thank you J.K. Rowling and Stephen Fry for another amazingly told story that'll light up the world!

    Undecided

    Stephen Fry does a great job reading, as always.
    But I am not really fond of the story. I couldn't identify and feel with any of the characters.
    Sometimes I was reaaly bired, sometimes the bad guys are just a little too bad, the good guys a little too good. The end came pretty sudden and was also just a little too sweet...

    Nicht nur für Kinder

    Eine Geschichte, die erst als Kindermärchen daherkommt. Wie „ Des Kaisers neue Kleider“ aber nicht ohne Hintersinn. Von Stephen Fry zum Niederknien vorgetragen. Sicher ist J. K. Rowling nicht die größte Literatin aller Zeiten. Das ist aber auch von Vorteil, so kann man dem Buch auch ohne elaborierte Englischkenntnisse gut folgen.

    Nice story, but sometimes very brutal

    This story is like everything of J.K.R.: A little dark, violent and cruel, with a lot of deaths but thankfully with a Happy End. Stephen Fry is, like always, doing a perfect job, giving every character his or her own unique voice. Unfortunately it takes 43 chapters till the story of the two children starts to really go off. Till then they are more or less minor figures.
    Nevertheless, it’s a nice entertaining story, sadly with a lot of parallels in the real world. But I wouldn’t recommend it for children under 12-14.

    marvelous Journey about lies and kindness

    not just a kids book - I'm 28 and loved it!
    Once again J.K. Rowling managed to drag me into a fantastically described world, with carefully detailed characters and kind of a plot twist, which makes the whole Story even more beautiful.

    Sehr schöne Geschichte

    Es hat mir großen Spaß diese Geschichte zu hören. Sie ist liebevoll geschrieben und gesprochen. Eine Geschichte, die zum Nachdenken anregt! Ob Kinder tatsächlich so viel damit anfangen können, weiß ich nicht. Mein Sohn ist erst sieben, für ihn wäre es nichts. Ich denke, ein Kind sollte etwa 12 sein, um es inhaltlich zu verstehen.
