I listened to this story with my 4 year old, and we both enjoyed it so much! It is read by the author, and his reading style is enchanting. Its like listening to your much loved grandfather read your favorite book to you...It is absolutely lovely.
Enchanting, delightful, engaging
E.B.White has a perfect voice for the story.
:-) Pork the new white meat.
The performance of the audio books is atrocious! I have no idea why they removed the fast forward/backward and skip features on Audible. This makes replaying or skipping impossible. It's very frustrating!
You often miss something while reading.
Hearing all the parts I'd forgotten.

I enjoyed listening to this with my grandchildren.
Addicted to Audible since 2009
A little sad at the end but such a classic and cute book and the audio version was great as the narrators does a tremendous job and I really like the afterword that followed the book as well. Highly recommended for kids and adults!
My 6 yo (active) boy didn't want to do anything else until he had completed listening to this story. He requested that we listen to it while eating dinner, and then he wanted to listen to it the first thing upon waking the next morning, etc. I heard bits and pieces as I was moving about, completing chores, and its sweetness brought me to tears.
It's wonderful to hear E.B. White read his own work. My kids loved listening to him as much as I did - and picked up on many of the messages of the story. Weeks later, when on the swing, my 5 year old quoted the book "children hold on tighter than you think they do". Love it!
E.B. White's voice may take some getting used to, but it is worth it. My children and I listened to this book over and over again. It is a great book and IMHO, well read!
Don't miss this classic!
This is the most amazing story I have ever heard. It give the most beautiful picture of death. It helped me understand how much it is to have a friend, saying that she dies in the end. And E.B White has the perfect touch and voice for this book.
