“In every nook and cranny, high and low, they sought for him…he had vanished as a star vanishes when it drops from its place in the sky.”

From the author of such children’s classics as The Secret Garden and A Little Princess comes this enchanting story of a young boy discovering his true destiny.

Twelve-year-old Marco knows he is being trained for something, but he isn’t sure what. All his life he has traveled with his father in secrecy, learning many languages and the ways of a gentleman, but forbidden to speak about their country of origin, Samavia. Samavia has been fraught with war for the last five hundred years, ever since the prince mysteriously disappeared. But now, there is hope that peace may come at last, as it has been rumored that a descendant of the lost prince may have been found. And Marco is about to take on a secret quest that will change everything for his family and his country.

I didn't think you could go wrong with a novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett. We loved _A Little Princess_ and _The Secret Garden_. _The Lost Prince_ was a harder sell, however. It is a long recording, and though it is full of mystery, adventure, and intrigue, none of my children (currently ages 5, 7, 10, and 12) ever really got into it. There is nothing wrong with this book. It is most definitely a classic. The recording is quite good, though we did have to crank it up all the way to hear sometimes. But we wouldn't have finished it if my kids hadn't been strapped into their seatbelts while listening.

Lots and lots of details....throughout the book. Many times we wanted the book to keep going with the plot, but was inundated with more details. We knew who the prince was, but it took the character FOREVER to figure it out.

This is definitely a boys' book, full of adventure, espionage, and danger where young boys turn their war play into a part of the real thing, becoming heroes in the end. It's well-read in an almost whispering, secretive, anticipatory voice that enhances the urgency of the storyline without being overdone.
