I plan on listening again MANY times. Useful information about the planets, super cool sound effects, neat narration. This is an undiscovered gem!
I liked the child narrator the best. It's unusual, I think, for children to narrate books but I think it's very effective.
All the characters are very different, so yes. There is child named WIll. He jumps into a robot called Planetron, which is also a spaceship. That is an older man's voice. There is a spunky female robot who is the data system for the ship. There are Will's parents, briefly. The robot/data system's voices have some sort of sound effect over them to make them sound more robo
A tour of the planets
Just that this is awesome. Held the attention of both the 6 year old, but also the 3 year old. Even if the smaller children can't concentrate on the narration about the methane concentration on Jupiter, they will like the cool sound effects, etc.
There is a small sort of bell sound that is somewhat distracting at times, but did not bother me; I think it is probably a signal to turn a page on a physical book. In any event, it did not bother us.
I used to whistle while I worked. Now I read a book!
Great special effects, good storyline, and I learned a lot about our Solar System, without being bored. 2 thumbs UP!
