    "A classic story, less than fabulous narrator"

    There are better audio versions of this sweet and ironic classic.

    "Lovely"

    Ever wanted to listen to a feel good story. Then this is it. A must listen to at Christmas time. It is the epitome of the spirit of giving. This is something the whole family should enjoy on Christmas eve by the fireside.
