    "Even Better Than the Origami Yoda Series"

    If you're reading this review, you're probably a parent like me, and your kid has read Origami Yoda, Darth Paper, or the latest, the Fortune Wookiee. (And hopefully you have too!) My son and I both love these books, great kid's stories and lots of Star Wars. Hopefully Tom Angleberger writes a dozen of them.

    So while we were waiting for Darth Paper to come out, we picked up Horton Halfpott, and to be honest, I didn't read this one until right before the author paid a Skype visit to my son's third grade class. (Highly recommended, Tom did not disappoint.) Having read all of his books now, Horton stands out by far as my favorite.

    It's basically a mystery, written with a very dry British sense of humor, but not so dry that the kids miss out on the hilarity. Horton is the loveable hero, there are plenty of villains, and all of the characters are a riot.

    When I needed something short and sweet between longer audiobooks, I went with this one, and now I love it even more. The narrator, Ron Keith, is perfectly suited for this tale, and he really, truly brings the story to life. Of all the books I've listened to since starting my Audible membership, it's funny that it would be a book for children that had the best narrative performance...

    I think a lot of parents today are just big kids, I know I am. So whether this audiobook is for your little one, or maybe you just want to have an idea of what they're reading, give Horton a try. And if we're lucky, perhaps a sequel for this book too, Mr. Angleberger?
