To all my friends with kids - yes. Great story for children and parents.
Great reading. My kids loved the voices he used for the various animals.
Laughed quite a bit...all of us did.
Was really surprised at the one review trashing the narrator. We thought he was great.
I would suggest you listen to the sample and decide for yourself.
It's an absurd little story book but one I remember fondly from childhood, a different recording on cassette was my first ever audiobook! This one is good too, the weird tale holds up for kids today
I would read another Ruth Stiles Gannett book, but I would avoid any children's books performed by Killavey.
My Father's Dragon is one of my daughter's favorite chapter books. I downloaded the audiobook so she could enjoy listening to the book at her leisure. Although I loved reading this book aloud to my daughter, I couldn't stand listening to Killavey's performance. It was snooze-worthy.
My daughter loves the animals and their quirky ways. Her favorite part is when the lion puts ribbons in his mane.
Killavey removed all excitement, magic and character from the story
It's a fun story, but don't download this performance of it.
