    Story

    Brutha is the Chosen One. His god has spoken to him, admittedly while currently in the shape of a tortoise. Brutha is a simple lad. He can't read. He can't write. He's pretty good at growing melons. And his wants are few. He wants to overthrow a huge and corrupt church. He wants to prevent a horribly holy war.

    Ursula Krischer says: "The Turtle moved for me"
    "Perfect narration for a perfect book"
    Overall

    Small Gods should be considered one of the greatest books of all time. Terry Pratchett is our modern day Mark Twain, using satire to comment on the state of 'civlization' and also bringing the thinking man or woman a great laugh. The narrator, a regular on the unabridged Pratchett circuit is perfectly matched to this work!

    Alice is back in her room, stroking her cats - but not for long. Slipping through the Looking-Glass, she meets another wild collection of fantasy characters including the Red and White Kings and Queens, Tweedledum and Tweedledee and is entertained by the poems "Jabberwocky" and "The Walrus and the Carpenter."

    Sabrina says: "A lovely rendition of a classic"

    The narrator on this version of "Through the Looking Glass..." combined with the charming and unobtrusive addition of sound effects make this a good selection for kids of all ages!

    Go down the rabbit hole with one of the best loved heroines in children's literature. Alice's remarkable adventures begin when she follows the White Rabbit down his hole into a peculiar world populated with strange and absurd creatures. Meet the Mock Turtle, the Mad-Hatter, the March Hare, the hookah-smoking Caterpillar, and the Queen of Hearts. This story was originally read aloud, and Ralph Cosham's engaging narration brings the magic to life. Adults may be surprised at what they find as they rediscover this beloved classic that the whole family can enjoy.

    Sabrina says: "Charming narration of a favorite"

    The narrator and quality offerings of this recording make purchasing this version an A+++. Now if only I could get the same options in "Through the Looking Glass."
