We started this on a trip, and had to figure out how to listen at home as they went to bed.
Finally got them to turn it off 1 hour after normal lights out.
Next morning we are woken to the sound of the author reading... they figured it out themselves!
The sound quailty is great, the story is great. 8 year old loved it, 5 year old found it a bit long and didn't listen to it all.
I loved it!
This is really a great book, even abridged.
Audio is a bit poor, mainly the music that is over the chapter start and ends, this drove us crazy, and we often missed some of the words.
Kids and adults loved this one.
Looking at a local school to send our boys to, we noticed this book in the class room- hardly a title you wouldn't notice! We brought the book and our 7 year old loved it! It got him reading. The books in this series are great, we love them, the kids love them, the teachers love them.
I will get them on Audible now and listen to them on family car trips, so we can all get caught up in the adventures.
Careful- this is good stuff and if you have heard it, you will know why I was upset when I realised that I was going to stop just as he got going. I went to the end of day 4 and am looking for the full tape set.
