Description-
  • Liesl lives in a tiny attic bedroom, locked away by her cruel stepmother. Her only friends are the shadows and the mice—until one night a ghost appears from the darkness. It is Po, who comes from the Other Side. Both Liesl and Po are lonely, but together they are less alone.

    That same night, an alchemist's apprentice, Will, bungles an important delivery. He accidentally switches a box containing the most powerful magic in the world with one containing something decidedly less remarkable

    Will's mistake has tremendous consequences for Liesl and Po, and it draws the three of them together on an extraordinary journey.

    From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver comes a luminous and magnificent novel that glows with rare magic, ghostly wonders, and a true friendship that lights even the darkest of places.

About the Author-
  • Lauren Oliver burst onto the scene with her first novel, the New York Times bestseller Before I Fall. This was followed by her stunning Delirium, which ALA Booklist called "another deft blend of realism and fantasy." A graduate of the University of Chicago and the MFA program at New York University, Lauren lives in Brooklyn, New York. Liesl & Po is her first novel for younger readers.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine When Liesl's beloved father dies, her stepmother locks her away in the attic. Her lonely existence is eased by the appearance of Po, a ghost, and his pet, Bundle. Meanwhile, Will, an alchemist's apprentice, accidentally switches deliveries one night, and mayhem ensues as the powers that be try to get the right box into the right hands. Jim Dale has a merry time narrating; listeners may well feel that "Uncle Jim" is telling them a rather dark bedtime story. Oliver paints gorgeous images with her language, and Dale at times sounds wonderstruck by the beauty of the tale. (He also performs terrific old-lady sneezes and delightful animal noises.) Smart children and fun-loving adults will devour this clever cracked fairy tale. G.D. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
