I would recommend this for any old fans of the book, and any youg reader looking to try something new. The fantastic story of Ralph and his adventurs are performed well and are still able to bring a smile to my face after many years.
As a childhood reader of all Cleary books, this story has made me want to revisit all of her old works.
This was the first BD Wong performance I've heard, outside of his acting on things like SVU and The Ref. It took a second to place him, and he wasn't who I would have expected, but he did a remarkable job.
My kids are three and five, and aren't generally captivated by lengthy stories, but I plan to play this on our next road trip, when they do seem to last a bit longer with their attention span. Books and audible in general have helped us as a family to avoid DVD players and video games in the car, which is something that I'm quite proud of.
Moore's combination of witty humor and slapstick comedy kept me completely enthralled. Add the stellar narration by Euan Morton, and you have a real winner. I have had it in my library 3 weeks and have already listened to it three times.
Fabulous book, spectacular performance.
Well worth it. My three year old has listened to it at least fifteen times with me.
