For a slightly older crowd, especially fantasy fans, there's Stuart Hill's The Cry of the Icemark, a swashbuckling epic starring a super-gutsy warrior queen and her buddy, the son of a witch. Together, they must unite Icemark's werewolves, vampires and talking snow leopards to defeat the evil invaders. This rollicking tale should keep listeners from whining about the heat, the traffic and the enforced togetherness of family car trips, so pack your headphones and hit the road!
