    What can I say, my kids adore this book and laugh everytime its on. After the first time they listened to it they were laughing, imitating the charaters, and asking for it again. It has a nice little twist on our normal fairytales that kids love, and the narrator was amazing at portraying the characters in a way that my kids remember and love. Would definately buy this book again.

    For centuries, mystical creatures of all description were gathered to a hidden refuge called Fablehaven to prevent their extinction. The sanctuary survives today as one of the last strongholds of true magic in a cynical world. Enchanting? Absolutely. Exciting? You bet. Safe? Well, actually, quite the opposite... Kendra and her brother Seth have no idea their grandfather is the current caretaker of Fablehaven.

    This series is amazing. My whole family enjoys listening to these, and we got them after our enjoyment of Brandon Mull's The Candy Shop War. I have two boys, one 8 and one 10. They love these books and it gives our whole family something to talk about and share. We now have jokes that are based off of this series that no one else gets. It is truly a wonderful and creative series that delights the whole family.

    "Mr Stink stank. He also stunk. And if it was correct English to say he stinked, then he stinked as well….” Chloe sees Mr Stink every day, but she’s never spoken to him - which isn’t surprising, because he’s a tramp, and he stinks. But there’s more to Mr Stink than meets the eye (or nose), and before she knows it, Chloe has an unusual new friend hiding in her garden shed.

    This was the first book by David Williams my family listened to. This book is very heartwarming, a little sad, and ends on a great note. I really enjoyed how the author brought together so many aspects into one book. My kids were entranced, and we had a great time listening to this book. I would highly recommend this book for grade school kids. Be prepared to explain what some words mean though. "Tramp" for example. My kids loved it despite the language difference.

    Ok, so I was torn on getting this book because of the mixed reviews I had read on it. I did though, and do not regret it. My children love this neurotic kid. We have been listening to this story every night and they adore it. We joke about our own PDK's (if you read the book you'll understand), and how his decisions affect him. This series has been a great hit. Not one of our favorites, but definitely worth the time.

    Joe has a lot of reasons to be happy. About a billion of them, in fact. You see, Joe's rich. Really, really rich. Joe's got his own bowling alley, his own cinema, even his own butler who is also an orang-utan. He's the wealthiest 12-year-old in the land. But Joe isn't happy. Why not? Because he's got a billion pounds… and not a single friend.

    David Williams books are one of my family's mainstays. We started with Mr. Stink, and the kids loved it, so they were excited to hear more. This was not one of our favorites though. Although the book had the same formula as the others, with a great deal of emotional struggles, and dismissive parenting, the book just did not add up. It just seemed to miss the magic of the others. If this is the first book of his you read, give another one a try. His others are definitely better. If you are a seasoned reader of David Williams, this book will be a slight disappointment.

    Hot on the heels of best-selling Gangsta Granny comes another hilarious, action-packed and touching novel - the story of a little girl called Zoe. Things are not looking good for Zoe. Her stepmother Sheila is so lazy she gets Zoe to pick her nose for her. The school bully Tina Trotts makes her life a misery - mainly by flobbing on her head. And now the evil Burt from Burt’s Burgers is after her pet rat! And guess what he wants to do with it? The clue is in the title....

    This book was very good. My kids and I enjoy David Williams books, and have since we read Mr. Stink. He has a way of making the books very relatable, even when they are outlandish. This book though, was very sad. It should have definitely had a warning on it. I caught myself and the kids tearing up and various parts. In the end, the book had a very good story with an upbeat ending. I would definitely recommend this book, but be forewarned that there might be some tears popping up.

    This collection of short stories from the master of modern fiction is available only as an audiobook. In Blood and Smoke, Stephen King takes us inside a world of yearning and paranoia, isolation and addiction. It is the world of the smoker. In this audio-only collection, the now politically incorrect habit plays a key role in the fates of three different men.

    A storm struck on the night Laura Shane was born, and there was a strangeness about the weather that people would remember for years. But even more mysterious was the blond-haired stranger who appeared out of nowhere - the man who saved Laura from a fatal delivery. Years later - after another bolt of lightning - the stranger returned.

    This book was not as good as most of the Koontz I read. I felt often like he was insulting my intelligence and adding information that was both irrelevant and inaccurate. We are not talking historically accurate either. He contradicted himself frequently, and the story seemed unnecessarily long. There were points that I thought I got lost. Overall, I made it through the book, and do not feel terrible about spending my time listening to it, but would not read it again.

    One dark, moonlit night, two artists met at the Lake Drummond Hotel, built directly on the borderline of North Carolina and Virginia. One was a young woman with the ability to see spirits trapped in trees and stone, anchored to the earth beyond their years. Her gift was to draw them, and then to set them free. The other was a dark man, haunted by dreams and visions that brought him stories of sadness and pain, trapped in a life between the powers he sensed all around him and a mundane existence attended by failure.

    I really enjoyed the story. It was dark, but had a way of drawing you into othe imagery of the story. The only issue I had, was that the narrator was hard to listen to. I found myself missing parts of the book because of the way the narrator...kinda droned on. It was a little tedious. The story is a keeper though, and the narrator didn't distract me so much that I did not enjoy the book.

    Once presided over by a flamboyant Hollywood mogul during the Roaring ’20s, the magnificent West Coast property known as Roseland is now home to a reclusive billionaire financier and his faithful servants. And, for the moment, it’s also a port in the storm for Odd Thomas and his traveling companion, the inscrutably charming Annamaria. In the wake of Odd’s most recent clash with lethal adversaries, the opulent manor’s comforts should be welcome. But there’s far more to Roseland than meets even the extraordinary eye of Odd, who soon suspects it may be more hell than haven.

    I was sceptical, but curious about this book. After I started it, it just drew me in. I laughed, and had a fair share of eww moments. Very enjoyable, and the narrator did great. Now I want to read more.
