    My kids (age 13 and 10) and I have really enjoyed this series. We are so disappointed to find that the next book will not be out until March.

    Definitely keeps you on the edge, the writing style is suspenseful but fun. The characters are interesting and different.

    Visit the magical animal world of Brian Jacques in this thrilling prequel to Redwall. Long before the abbey of Redwall is built, the land is known simply as Mossflower, a lush woodland and happy home to all. That is, until Tsarmina, a cruel wildcat queen who demands obedience and offers the castle's dungeon to those who defy her, comes along. Brian Jacques' tales of courageous heroes and deliciously hateful villains have captivated countless readers.

    My children (ages 8 and 11) and I are veterans of children's audiobooks, and we have truly enjoyed the first three books of this series. It has the right mix of adventure, fun and swashbuckling to keep their interest high throughout. We will hold Mossflower near and dear to our hearts as the introduction to this wonderful world of stories.

    A journey of 167,000 lights years begins with...a bar of soap? Fasten your zero gravity restraints for Robert Heinlein's novel of intergalactic adventure, a story that carries teenager Clifford "Kip" Russell from his job as soda jerk to space-suit winner to alien abductee! Along the way Kip is joined by a pint-sized genius named Peewee and an empathetic alien creature known as "the Mother Thing."

    Ages 8 and 10, my kids and I are very attached (as well as critical) of audiobooks since we commute almost 2 hours a day. This book had the right mix of length, suspense and mystery, sci-fi plot complication, and good manners to please each of us. Really a fun one for comparing what the "future" seemed like it would be in 1958, and where we are now. Although the kids didn't really notice some of this detail (like sliderules and moon-scapes), I found it hilarious.
