Reviews

fantastic version of a much told tale

(5 stars)

My 8 year old nephew and I throughly enjoyed this book. He continues to listen to it when he can't seem to find another of interest. This version is beyond perfect for children. Of course, no matter how good the story, interest equally depends on how good the reader is. And this reader is a success.

Great book
