    Story
    (18)

    Inspired by the Celtic legend and the spirit of the imagination, Christmas in Camelot is Mary Pope Osborne's gift to young listeners everywhere. It begins with a simple invitation to spend Christmas Eve in Camelot, a magical place that exists only in myth and fantasy. What Jack and Annie don't know is that the invitation will send them on a quest to save Camelot itself, not from destruction, but from being forgotten forever.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Slower reading pace, less forced dramatic expression and more distinct elocution are required. The dialect seems fake and disingenuous.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    No more magic tree house.

    Since its publication in 1952, Charlotte's Web has become one of America's best-loved children's books. For fifty years, this timeless story of the pig named Wilbur and the wise spider named Charlotte who saved him has continued to warm the hearts of readers everywhere. This 1953 Newbery Honor Book comes to life in a delightful unabridged recording, read lovingly by the author himself.

    Richard says: "Some book"

    If you could sum up Charlotte's Web in three words, what would they be?

    Radiant, Terrific and Humble


    What did you like best about this story?

    E.B. White's reading was perfect for my third grader to read along. Listening and reading allowed her to discover precious gems on her own within the dialogue. One favorite example is when Templeton says " I am a glutton but not a merrymaker." Comprehension becomes a delight when it is discovered, rather than a tested task. This particular presentation accomplishes this beautifully.


    Have you listened to any of E.B. White and George Plimpton ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    N/A


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no
