The Ickabog Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The Ickabog is coming....
A mythical monster, a kingdom in peril, an adventure that will test two children’s bravery to the limit. Discover a brilliantly original fairy tale about the power of hope and friendship to triumph against all odds, from one of the world’s best storytellers.
The kingdom of Cornucopia was once the happiest in the world. It had plenty of gold, a king with the finest moustache you could possibly imagine, and butchers, bakers, and cheesemongers whose exquisite foods made a person dance with delight when they ate them.
Everything was perfect - except for the misty Marshlands to the north, which, according to legend, were home to the monstrous Ickabog. Anyone sensible knew that the Ickabog was just a myth to scare children into behaving. But the funny thing about myths is that sometimes they take on a life of their own.
Could a myth unseat a beloved king? Could a myth bring a once happy country to its knees? Could a myth thrust two children into an adventure they didn’t ask for and never expected?
If you’re feeling brave, immerse yourself in this audiobook to find out....

Rowling probably didn't originally intend this story to be an allegory of a society demanding that we believe things that aren't true, noting that she originally wrote the story for her own children decades ago. But it also functions on that level, demonstrating that Rowling remains the most versatile fiction author currently alive. Whether young children's fiction (Ickabog), older children's (Harry Potter), adult literary fiction (The Casual Vacancy) or her detective novels under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, Rowling deservedly collects the accolades, and the sales.
This is a intents book.
I would not like to be living in cornucopia when lord spittleworth was lieing about the icabog.
I love how kids from around the world did the illustrations.
I put a picture into the competion myself it was great fun.

I ordered this book, when there was a backlash about a tweet she did, as I wanted to support her stand for truth.
