I found this old timey children's story entertaining both for adults and for the children I babysit. It was also somewhat educational with an air of fantasy, magic, and moral lessons.
The baby. The baby added extra humor, was very smart, and was very endearing.
I enjoyed the whole book so much, that after thinking about it for several minutes I was unable to chose a favorite.
Absolutely. In fact, I did so the first night I listened to it. On nights when I have a hard time sleeping, I lie down with my headphones on and enjoy the story until I drift off.
The reader did a wonderful job of inserting emotion into the story and changing her voice to suit different characters. It reminded me of when I was a little girl being read a bedtime story by my mother.
Laura did a fantastic job reading this title. She made the story come to life with her emotional style of reading. She was good at creating different voice for the characters so that one did not become confused as to whom was speaking, and she read the dramatic parts a bit more quickly, as one would do naturally while reading it themselves.
Nancy of course! She's so clever, yet still maintains elements of being a teenage girl,so that she does not seem too old for her character.
I would not recommend listening to this in chapters before bed. The cliffhangers might make you lie awake.
