A good story for listening while you're walking, etc. as there are no major plot twists or mysteries to have to keep up with. This is the real story - not the movie - and it takes place in England. I recommend this for a time when you just can't decide what you want - and you're not in the mood for more murder, mayhem, political intrigue.
Would have liked to get to know the characters more. More indepth on the children, interaction with the animals.
Narrators performance is great.
I would read a follow-up book - if he puts a little more "beef" in it.
I realize the author was giving us his real life "diary" of events and not making up sensational happenings.
I like the main character - she deals with her situation with fun and determination. The various characters around her remind you of why many Americans think the British royalty somewhat pompous and foolish.
The plot keeps you listening and trying to guess "who done it."
The narrator is perfect and brings the "British atmosphere" to life.
Wish I could listen to all the books in one sitting, but, alas, that is impossible.
I do plan to listen to more in this series.
One story in this collection was worth the listen - The Leaf - don't remember ever reading it before. Enjoyed it.
Liked using both characters - gave a "boost" to the story.
This is for teen girls.
Once in awhile I like to listen to young people books to keep up with what is new in their genre.
This is a fun read - enjoyed it. I listen to a lot of my recorded books while I'm walking - so I don't want anything too heavy or depressing.
This is a fun "light" mystery - such as you find in the "Dog On It" stories of Chet and Bernie.
The best character in the book is the main one - Bailey Ruth (the ghost who is not a ghost!). She is fun loving and very much into fashion.
Don't think this would translate to the screen.
An easy fun listen.
A quick, easy, fun read. The dog, Chet, tells the story & it's fun to see how he sees and interprets things.
Chet is probably my favorite character - you wonder how on earth he will get out of some situations.
No, not compelling/
Another narrator - please don't let Mary Higgins Clark narrate - keep her at the typewriter!
Was expecting better.
No, not really compelling.
Ending was fine - brought the storyline "up" some.
So-so cozy, Hope you like hearing all about coffee.
Absolutely delightful! Listen to this when you're having to wait in the doctor/dentist office - or hit the mute button on the TV news and refresh your spirits.
