Charlie Bone and the Time Twister

I listened to a great audiobook this summer:  Charlie Bone and the Time Twister by Jenny Nimmo, narrated by Simon Russell Beale. This is the second in the Children of the Red King series, featuring Charlie Bone. Charlie is one of the endowed and brings his magical gifts to the aid of his young ancestor Henry Yewbeam who has accidentally travelled through time from 1916 to the present, where he needs Charlie’s help to hide from his cousin Ezekiel Bloor and the scheming Yewbeam aunts. Beale does a phemomenal job of embodying each character using different voices (and there are a lot of them!). A good choice for those who love Harry P.
