    Old Ms. McMartin is definitely dead. Now her crumbling Victorian mansion lies vacant. When 11-year-old Olive and her dippy mathematician parents move in, she knows there’s something odd about the place—not least the walls covered in strange antique paintings.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes... good listen if you have kids in the 'tween' range. My daughter really took to the female lead. There were some potentially scary parts but nothing to keep the kids up at night


    What does Lexy Fridell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Personally I thought she did a great job of bringing the characters to life, but my wife thought her voice was annoying.

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Go the F--k to Sleep to be better than the print version?

    I have read the book and I must say hearing Samuel Jackson read it made it all the more entertaining


    Would you recommend Go the F--k to Sleep to your friends? Why or why not?

    If you are a parent, this will bring back memories of how you felt...

    Henry Grim has never discovered a forbidden room in a foreign castle, or received a death threat over breakfast. All Henry knows is life as an orphaned servant boy at the Midsummer School, bullied by the privileged sons of aristocracy. But all that changes when Henry is the first commoner to pass the entrance exam for the prestigious Knightley Academy, where he will be trained as a modern-day knight alongside the cleverest and bravest fourteen-year-olds in the country.

    Would you recommend Knightley Academy to your friends? Why or why not?

    My daughter and I thought by the review that it sounded like a HP type story... We figured it was worth a try...I must say most audible books we listen to as a family we rather enjoy... unfortunately this one left us wanting more...Kind of predictable and a bit boring
