Ifflepinn Island: Volume 2 - CD
Audiobook narrated by Muz Murray
A faerytale for green-growing children and evergreen adults.
Iffleplum is bored with just being an ifflepinn and living in a secret magical country. He knightly dreams of dashing deeds, of saving damsels in distress, or slaying monsters and the like, as do the heroes in his Legends book. The Froaksday Fair Festival is pleasant fun, but "No adventures ever come my way," he grumbles. "Don't throw your heart away on wild deeds!" his Iffle-mother Mumkin had warned him. But when a piercing scream of terror rings out in the Wossle Wood, it starts him off on more fantastical adventures than he ever dreamed!
Part the Third: A Shriek in the Woods - In which Old Wossul, Spirit of the Woods appears and sings the Song of Spring for sap-rise in the trees. But as the day wears on, the joy of the Springsong fades away, for Iffleplum has a creepy feeling that someone is always secretly watching him. In a tussle, he loses his balloon upon the breeze and races after it, while the unseen eyes follow him up the hillside into the enchanted Wossle Wood. And there, at sunset, a terrifying shriek shocks Iffleplum into the adventure he has long awaited for!
Part the Fourth: Owleyes Breaks the Spell - In which Iffleplum attempts to save a tree-deeve in distress, by foolishly leaping into a magical faery ring, where he is menaced by the shambling shadow-creatures known as Gropes. A scary meeting with his 'rescuer,' old Owleyes Scragmire the Soothsayer, ends in a bad bargain made with the Storm-Pog who has designs upon his 'elfin-heart.'
The second two chapters of an esoteric epic faerytale fantasy.
“I bought the CDs for my grandson when they first came out, I think he was just 7 at the time; they were his favourite bedtime listening for years. Now he’s nearly 11. And although he has hundreds of CDs, videos and every electronic game imaginable, he still listens to Ifflepinn Island.... Really enjoyed reading the book myself before giving it as a gift to a child, the illustrations are awesome."

"Just wanted to let you know that your Ifflepinn CD is an absolute hit with our gang of (3 - 4 year old) children who listen to it every night. By the time you see them again they will know it by heart and will be ready for the next installment!!!"
