Holling being convinced that the teacher hated him--she actually might have, he was the only one in her classroom every afternoon.

I purchased this for one of my "would rather do physical labor than read" boys. I put it on an iPod for him and he listened to it while working, and driving. He actually listened to the whole thing, and said it was good. He liked the shorter story aspect of it rather than a long form novel.
My students love this book so much that I have had to buy replacement hard copies and make sure I had the audio for non-print readers, so they could get in on the action, too.
We teach this book in my high school and use the audio to help auditory readers understand the plot. The narrators sound like they could be kids at our school.
