    Mary Poppins is like no other nanny the four Banks children have ever seen. She whirls into their home and "spit-spot", she works her inimitable brand of magic to make even the bland seem extraordinary. An endless source of fascinating adventure, she slides up the banister, produces an array of tricks from her seemingly empty carpetbag, and ensures the Banks - lives will never be the same.

    Would you try another book from P. L. Travers and/or Sophie Thompson?

    The woman sounds like she's trapped under a bed and has to read the book as quickly as possible.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Sophie Thompson’s performances?

    No

    When Humphrey hears that school is ending, he panics. School ends? What's a classroom hamster to do if he's not in school? But as it turns out, there's something thrilling in store for Humphrey and Og the frog: going to Camp Happy Hollow with Ms. Mac and lots of the kids from Room 26! Camper Humphrey meets a friendly wild mouse, tracks down Og when he gets lost by the lake, and uses his wily charm to help kids adjust to cabin life and make new friends.

    Would you listen to Summer According to Humphrey again? Why?

    My kids LOVE these stories and we got hooked on them, listening through the whole collection. This narrator is much more difficult to listen to and the racial stereotypes he uses for the voices are painful.

    My troublemaker cousin was trapped in Transratania! And before I could even squeak, my sister, Thea, dragged me along on her rescue mission. Little did we know that Transratania is the land of vampire bats! Holey cheese, bats give me goose bumps!

    What did you love best about Geronimo Stilton?

    These stories are 'stock' and not all that good of plots... THAT being said, they're entertaining for my children. They're narrated wonderfully and my children love all the 'fabu-mouse' words!

  • Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea

    Barbara Demick's Nothing to Envy follows the lives of six North Koreans over fifteen years - a chaotic period that saw the death of Kim Il-sung and the unchallenged rise to power of his son, Kim Jong-il, and the devastation of a far-ranging famine that killed one-fifth of the population. Taking us into a landscape never before seen, Demick brings to life what it means to be an average Korean citizen, living under the most repressive totalitarian regime today.

    What did you love best about Nothing to Envy?

    This book was just fascinating, the narration was excellent as well. If you're interested in North Korea, this book gives a personal touch to historical events.

    Jimmy, Gerald, and Cathy discover an enchanted garden and wake a beautiful princess from a hundred-year-sleep - only to have her immediately made invisible by a magic ring. The quest to rescue her from her own magic proves difficult, humorous, and at times very frightening.

    Here is a timeless tale of waterside Britain that has been loved by generations of children and acclaimed as a classic. The story of Mole, Ratty, Badger, and Toad, and their escapades, whether messing about on the river or poop-pooping in Toad's shiny new car, cannot fail to enchant.

    Adriana Bate says: "Classic classic classic"
    "Love the book. Not loving the narration"
    Overall

    I got this for my children to listen to, but yhr thickish British accent and the dry way of reading it made it difficult for them to wade through. I get these so that great books come alive for them in a way I cant, but Im pretty sure my version will be more entertaining.
