    Story
    "Favorite stories made even better!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of James Herriot's Treasury for Children to be better than the print version?

    Actually, yes. As an American, I can't imagine the Yorkshire accents just from the printed word. Jim Dale's reading is quite excellent, though his James Herriot doesn't sound as Scottish as often described in the books.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of James Herriot's Treasury for Children?

    That would be a spoiler.


    What about Jim Dale’s performance did you like?

    Timing, accent, voices.
