Wonderfully Delightful!

(5 stars)

This was very entertaining. I loved the voice of the narrator, and most of the other actors as well. I say "actor" because the majority of the time, the only thing missing, was the sound effects, to make it a dramatic reading. I highly recommend this audio book.

Great for all ages

(4.5 stars)

Really enjoyed this version however some of the sound quality was a bit off but still an excellent story and effort by all the volunteers
