Excellent narration of this timeless classic about a young girl, cruel headmistress and enduring values of love and friendship. All characterizations were superbly performed by the narrator.
A Little Princess is one of my favourite children's stories. However, quite frankly,
Vanessa Maroney was a rather irritating narrator. Her "children's voice" was grating!
Norwegian, creatomaniac and a lover of fantasy and adventure audiobooks. I usually put one on while I am making whatever takes my fancy.
Take one child, with a warm heart, dip it in trouble and heartbreak but make it survive and add a dash of happy ending.
This seems the recipe of most of Frances Hodgson Burnetts books, but they are so lovely.
I would heartily recommend any of these books to any parent who want a good book to read for their child, and specially to girls.
"Gripping and heartbreaking"
You are drawn into the beautiful story and forget the narrator, the sign of a good reader. A super read.
"Wonderful reading of a lovely story."
I loved this story as a child and found it just as delightful now as I did then. The story is beautifully written and equally beautifully read. I recommend it to adults and children alike.
