    Story

    This was a great listen for both young and older alike. I think I liked this more than my 10-year-old daughter because I grew up in the book's time frame and lived within 10 miles of where Tammy lived. The main character was feisty with a soft side. The lesson that the book told was right on without being overbearing. A wonderful family listen.

    Muscle Man McGinty can certainly tell some whoppers, but this time he's done the unthinkable. He bragged he can beat the entire block in a game of kickball! On Ramble Street, tough talk about kickball cannot be ignored. For Tamara Ann Simpson, however, this is great news. Now she'll finally be able to prove to everyone what a wormy little runt Muscle Man really is. Of course things would be a lot easier if her best friend Kebsie Grobser were here to help her.

    Story

    I listened to this with my nine-year-old daughter in five short sessions as she read along with the more-than-500-page printed version. Even if you do not listen with a young child, get the printed version. The hundreds of illustrations in the book are magnificent. The recorded version is also enhanced by several mood-creating sound effects which, in my opinion, really added to the enjoyment of the story. The narrator was magnificent in his renderings of all the characters, particularly Georges. If you are hesitant about using a credit for a book that is less than three hours long, make the leap with this one. I guarantee you will choose to listen to it several times because the experience is just that good.

  • Magic Tree House Collection: Books 1-8

    "Fun!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What did you love best about Magic Tree House Collection: Books 1-8?

    My 7 year old daughter loved to listen to these while playing lego's or dolls. Much better than having the tv going in the background. She loves the books and has read them and is now enjoying listening to them over and over.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Magic Tree House Collection: Books 1-8?

    The trip to prehistoric times was exciting and entertaining.


    Any additional comments?

    While reading is incredibly important listening and using the imagination is also. This gives the child a different way to use their imagination. Audible books are a great way to encourage development. I also appreciate that Mary Pope Osborne does not use slang. I have found other audible's hard to listen to as they are written in slang or as if a 5-6 year old were speaking. Hearing poor English sets up a pattern for poor speaking in a young mind. I love that this author and this audible did not make me cringe.

    Story
    If you could sum up Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer in three words, what would they be?

    Family Fun


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer?

    When Theodore struggled with fighting in school. He is not a fighter but struggled with the concept of sticking up for right vs wrong. A very real everyday struggle for children and adults.


    Which character – as performed by Richard Thomas – was your favorite?

    The uncle


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. Its a book that my daugther and I listen to together.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a book that can be listened to as a family. The tv is off or in the car the radio is off. Conversation regarding characters and situations in the book follow.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Goosebumps HorrorLand, Book 1 the most enjoyable?

    My daughter got really caught up in the story. She was enthralled, a littled scared, a little grosed out and completely entertained.


    What other book might you compare Goosebumps HorrorLand, Book 1 to and why?

    Creep of the deep. But this one had a little extra something in it.


    What about Alissa Hunnicutt’s performance did you like?

    Fun.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The dummy was pretty frightening in its own way. At one point my daughter commented that she thought the book was too scary yet refused to stop listening. No nightmares as she stuck it out and the adventure was all explained. My daughter was engrosed in the story from the beginning. I think she is a bit young for the series but she was checking them out in the school library hiding and reading them so I allowed it. However if the child is easily frightened or does not understand that the stories are not real - this particular story might be one to wait on.


    Any additional comments?

    I appreciate that she can use her imagination and listen while playing or driving. Saves the parent from the annoying blabbering yellow character and pink friend on tv and creates dialogue. My husband and I enjoyed hearing them also. From an adult perspective they are a scream!

    Have you listened to any of Nathaniel Parker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. The other Artis Fowl books.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. Its nice to look forward to hearing it.


    Any additional comments?

    Good fun for the family.

Bruce himself appears on this recording as Gaspar Morley, head of a strange family of monsters that draw Anthony (our narrator) and his little sister Sarah into a galaxy - spanning adventure with the very souls of Earth's dead at stake.
