    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I have enjoyed all of the Nancy Drew books and I am now sharing them with my children. We have enjoyed the audio versions narrated by Laura Linney. Danica Reese's narration, however, doesn't measure up....


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Danica Reese?

    Laura Linney.


    Was The Sign of The Twisted Candle worth the listening time?

    The story was good; the narration distracted from the story.

  • The Wolves of Willoughby Chase

    Story
    (22)

    Wicked wolves and a grim governess threaten Bonnie and her cousin Sylvia when Bonnie's parents leave Willoughby Chase for a sea voyage. Left in the care of the cruel Miss Slighcarp, the girls can hardly believe what is happening to their once happy home. The servants are dismissed, the furniture is sold, and Bonnie and Sylvia are sent to a prison-like orphan school. It seems as if the endless hours of drudgery will never cease.

    Catherine says: "Charming!"
    "Suspenseful, Superb."

    Story
    If you could sum up The Wolves of Willoughby Chase in three words, what would they be?

    Gripping tale told masterfully.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bonnie and Jane, of course.


    What does Lizza Aiken bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The charming English accent! The fact that she mentions the book was written by her mother was meaningful to me.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A fearful turn of events experienced with a true friend in the setting of a quaint English manor and countryside...(long tag line)


    Any additional comments?

    We enjoyed this excellent book and were very pleased with the audio version.

    In The Jesus Storybook Bible, every story whispers his name. It tells the story beneath all the stories in the Bible.

  • Beowulf: Dragon Slayer

    Grendel prowled in, hating all men and all joy and hungry for human life. So swift was his attack that no man heard an outcry; but when the dawn came, thirty of Hothgar's best and noblest thanes were missing. Only Beowulf, foremost among warriors, has the strength and courage to battle with Grendel the Night-stalker....

    Yes...and we did!

    Excellent history on audio. After reading about Beowulf in homeschool history, we listened to this version while in the car. I'm so pleased we added this to our audio library.
