Maisy and the Missing Mice was a fun mystery for the younger set. I have to say, I enjoyed it as well. The story was well written and it was fun to guess 'whodunit'. I thought the narrator did a nice job.
I received this from the author in exchange for my honest review. This was a really fun audio book to listen to! The story was full of magic, fantasy and adventure. I think that the narrator did an excellent job with the voices, especially doing children’s voices. Lars has a gift for writing. It was neat because I was able to imagine my 11 year-old daughter Keira in the place of Zoe. Some of the things she said as well as some of her mannerisms were similar. Lars has written a special story here that can be enjoyed by children of all ages. I definitely recommend the audio book version, especially for listening together in the car with your kiddos.
I think by now you know that I am a huge fan of Lars Guignard. I absolutely love the Zoe & Zak series, both reading the story and listening to the audiobooks. My older daughter and I both love Zoe & Zak’s adventurous spirits. We know when picking up a Zoe & Zak story that we’re going on a grand adventure and we’re going to enjoy every minute of it. Zoe & Zak and the Tiger Temple by Lars Guignard has been our favorite story so far. It was really exciting to listen to. We both enjoy the narrator. Lars has a writing style that makes the story feel genuine. If you love brave little heroes and fun adventures, this series is one you need to read or listen to (or both!).
A fun book read by a great narrator. It was surprisingly easy to see Carlson as 11-year-old Zoey. She also does a nice job with doing different voices for the other characters as well. That makes it easier to know who is speaking. And I absolutely loved the setting and how it was presented in the story. India is a fascinating place, but there aren't a lot of children's books set there and the one's that are are mostly historical fiction. So it was fun to listen to a fantasy, adventure story set in India that while a lot of things were made up the culture shines through so well.
Zoey is very appealing heroine with mostly good sense, who has to put up with Zak's curiosity and impulsiveness. Yet she has her own reasons for getting involved with 'rhino butt' and his map and a leopard who had never been photographed. When the kid's parents have to leave and the kids are left in the care of a rent-a-nanny, things really start to happen, especially when the kids end up stuck in a trunk being flown, who knows where. And what's this about a ghost leopard, and how on earth are two kids supposed to save a mythical creature in a foreign land? Read/listen to the book and find out! Highly recommended.
