Karen always does an incredible job narrating, but I'm especially pleased with Doctor Doolittle and it's sequel. The stories were old childhood favorites that I hadn't read or thought of in years. They made a long car trip enjoyable for both my four year old and myself. My son fell in love with them, and hasn't listened to any of his other stories in weeks. Thanks for doing another fantastic job Karen!

A Wonderful Book, Wonderfully Read!

(5 stars)

Karen Savage is one of our favourite Librivox readers. She brings this fun, educational and adventurous book to life. My 6 year old couldn't go to sleep until he had listened to the whole thing! I enjoyed it just as much. Thank you Karen!

Delightful

(5 stars)

I read an abridged version of this book when I was a child. I'm delighted to hear the full story now. And the reader is excellent, with a clear voice, reasonable speed, and lovely renditions of the animals.

Delightful story

(5 stars)

Karen Savage is one of the most gifted and versatile young narrators, whose talents have never failed to enchant, particularly when employing her crisp, native British English voice.

fun quick listen

(4.5 stars)

Sure there are references to smoking and it is not politically correct but this is a fun listen.
