My son reads this series and this was one of several audio books we picked up to listen to on a trip. This writing is okay but not as good as I'd hoped in audio.
Obviously Peter Pan is a wonderful wonderful wonderful magical story for all ages and would normally get five stars. However, the audio edition wasn't as good as we'd hoped. I never warmed to the narrator and neither did my kids.
Just finished listening to the entire series and I must say I loved every minute of it. My son and I listened during a long trip and couldn't wait to get back to it. We had to take turns with the little ones though but when they fell asleep, we were back listening.
After our trip, we listened to book 2, 3, and 4, and were wowed by this amazing story. What a joy to listen to especially with the narration being done so well. I would highly recommend this one and the sequels. Bravo Mr. Stanek on a job well done. This was amazing!
I got this to go along with the printed books. Not since Dr. Seuss have the kids in my classroom been so enchanted. Robert Stanek is one of those rare creative geniuses who both entertain us and challenge us to open our minds. The books are simple enough for beginning readers yet full of subtle touches that make it enjoyable even for adults. The stories teach good lessons and this is wonderfully voiced.
