Read by Lee Ann Howlett

(4.3 stars; 38 reviews)

Zip, a little fox terrier, lives in the town of Maplewood in the house of his owner, Dr. Elsworth. Each day when Dr. Elsworth drives his carriage to visit his patients, Zip goes along with him so that he can keep the doctor company and, most importantly, visit with the other animals in the town. Zip likes to find out all the latest news so that he can tell it to his best friend, Tabby the cat, who also lives with Dr. Elsworth. However, he also finds himself getting into mischief, whether it's trying to solve a burglary, sneaking fried chicken from a picnic, getting stuck in a stovepipe or fighting with Peter-Kins the monkey. Zip is one dog who never has a dull day. (Summary by Lee Ann Howlett.) (1 hr 38 min)

An okay tale about a curious terrier


(4 stars)

This story is an okay tale about the various adventures of a terrier in a small town. I especially enjoyed the Librivox volunteer reader :)

Wonderful!

Very enjoyable story! We thought the author was quite creative to come up with all the twists and turns of Zip's various adventures. Lee Ann Howlett provides an excellent solo recording.
