"This tale that I am about to tell is of a little boy who lived and suffered in those dark middle ages; of how he saw both the good and the bad of men, and of how, by gentleness and love and not by strife and hatred, he came at last to stand above other men and to be looked up to by all." - from the book Young Otto is born into a warring household in a lawless age. Having no mother, he is sent by his father, a valiant robber baron, to be safely raised by the monks until the age of 12. But when he returns, gentle Otto can no longer escape the bitter blood feud between his father and the rival house of Trutz-Drachen. He is kidnapped by the rival family and his hand is cut off, to be replaced forever by a silver one. Can his brave father and his captor's kind daughter, Pauline, help him escape?

"Otto of the Silver Hand has audience appeal for fans of the Arthurian legends....Geoffrey Howard's crisp diction and nuanced characterizations enhance this classic story....a worthy addition to any audiobook collection seeking lesser-known classics in children's literature." ( School Library Journal)
"Otto of the Silver Hand is marvelously read by Geoffrey Howard....well worth the listen." (

Loved it!

It came alive! We're sad, then laughed, then silent, then cheered. One-eyed Hans was awesome

We wished it could have been much longer!

My family listened to this together and enjoyed it right up until the last chapter, when they realized it was about to end. The story felt like it was an extended introduction to an epic tale....and then they realized it WAS the entire tale.
