Our children listen to audio books while we travel and they really liked this book. This is a good addition to our collection. We especially think the narrator does a good job telling the stories.
Our kids liked the milkmaid who keeps getting her words wrong.
Yes, I bought this book because we had listened to Jack, The Beanstalk and Other Stories on a trip. We were surprised because the narrator sounds southern in that book but isn't in this one. Both books made us laugh. They were different but both fun.
Yes. We wished there were more stories to listen to since we were traveling.
The author (who is also the narrator) does a good job of expanding the fables into full stories. Each one lasts a few minutes. He also gives the stories a sense of humor that adults enjoy. We liked listening to both of his books as a family.
These stories are a lot of fun. We listened to it as a family on a trip and it had a sense of humor that everyone enjoyed. The narrator has a good voice for this kind of story. I didn't read the print version but I think I would miss the narration in the printed book. The narrator has a good accent that fits the story really well.
The main character, Jack, of course. He is a little different in each story but he always succeeds.
We liked the story Jack and the Varmints, especially when the robbers return to the house.
Yes, we were traveling.
Just enjoyed it. I would recommend it as a book that has something for an adult sense of humor as well as a child's.
