Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Audio Cassette)
Running time: 11 hrs., 48 mins.
For twelve long years, the dread fortress of Azkaban held an infamous prisoner named Sirius Black. Convicted of killing thirteen people with a single curse, he was said to be the heir apparent to the Dark Lord, Voldemort.
Now he has escaped, leaving only two clues as to where he might be headed: Harry Potter's defeat of You-Know-Who was Black's downfall as well. And the Azkban guards heard Black muttering in his sleep, "He's at Hogwarts...he's at Hogwarts."
Harry Potter isn't safe, not even within the walls of his magical school, surrounded by his friends. Because on top of it all, there may well be a traitor in their midst.
Tidesong follows young witch Sophie who wants nothing more than to study magic and to study hard! But her plans for training are not going so smoothly; especially not when she accidentally beaches a water dragon named Lir, and their magic becomes entangled—hopefully not forever! This gentle story surrounds you with engaging characters and magical world-building, with wonderful commentary around our own toxic internal dialogues of self-criticism and fear. It’s a story of learning to trust yourself, in the face of both your successes and your mistakes.
