This book was a delight. It's not a happy feel-good story, instead it shows life in a real way through different eyes.
These short stories are excellent, and the narrator is one of the BEST! There had been an issue of only Rip Van Winkle being included but this has now been corrected. The length of this audiobook at the time I purchased it had been listed as 48 minutes but now it is two hours and 14 minutes long. If you purchased this prior to this correction, you just need to download it again as I did and you will gain access to both stories.
This story is great but the performance was just a little "flat" which left me feeling like I could not justify giving it an overall 5 star rating.
I liked this book from the beginning, and it kept my interest throughout. It is the perfect light "read" for Christmas - a book to listen to and do menial tasks at the same time. Jennifer Van Dyck's narration is a good fit.
Jon Scieszka and Mike Ferreri are well matched. I loved it and so did my son and his best friend (ages 13).
