Time VERY well-spent! MY 9 year-old's top ten favorite.
We usually allow him to listen before bed and on long rides in the car. Believe me, parents, You will never have to hear "are we there, yet?" with this audio playing.
We also have "Blah, blah, blah". I did enjoy that one a bit more, but this one was good too.
Hi voice, his personality!! He's great. Most authors aren't the greatest narrators. But Bill is absolutely wonderful.
Oh, yes! This would make a great afterschool series. On of the few I would approve of. Some cartoons are SO edgy and hyper these days.
Keep them coming Bill. We will be listening!!
I would and I have.
This was actually my first, but not my last.
I have not had the pleasure. But I did enjoy her performance. Its hard to find a good reader for young stories. She was very good.
I felt for Sammy, having to sneak in and out of her grand-mother's apartment. and how her mother is not actually behaving as a mother should.
Great story, I look forward to other of this series.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. It is one of a long series, but you need not read the others (the Rev. Curtis Black Series) to enjoy this story.
For what it was, it was a good story. VERY dramatic and soap-opera-ish. You find yourself rolling your eyes and shaking your head throughout the story. But not in a necessarily bad way.
Morality to the side. It would be Alicia. I wanted to slap her and ask her, "Girl, do you realize how good you have it? And you're messing it up!"
Once again, Alicia. You just know by the end of this story, she didn't learn her lesson.
No, just that this is an quick, enjoyable read.
I loved this story! The author got Rosemary's "voice" just right. Not too mature or childish. Just right.
Rosemary is a little over-weight. ok, a lot over-weight. She has endured one diet or another for as long as she can remember, to no avail. finally she decides to take matters into her own hands. First she tries diet pills. They help for a short time. But with the help of a dietician she realizes that this isn't the healthiest way. On top of this she finds out that her tough-as-nails Mom, has cancer. It's a lot to go through, and Rosemary has a lot of growing up to do.
This is a great book for teens and adults, and opens the door for some great conversations.
I didn't think Dr. Suess could be made better, this audio did just that!
This was a compilation of favorite stories, so there was something for everyone. Each story was read by a different celebrity. Dustin Hoffman reads Horton Hears a Who, etc.
I can't choose, I really can't. Although, How the Grinch Stole XMas is my favorite story, of all time!!
No, dole it out slowly. Listen to a couple of stories at a time, and enjoy.
