I rated overall four stars because it was nice and funny but it was kind of old fashioned. I rated performance three because the person who read it had feeling to the story but the the accents sounded kind of silly.
My children and I listened to the first three books in the series and loved them. We made it through ten minutes of book 4 with the new narrator, after two I was thinking "ugh I can't stand this narrator but I will not say anything." By eight minutes my kids were begging me to turn it off. They said the narrator sounded like a cartoon and they didn't want to listen anymore. Unfortunately I agreed with them. We will see if other books go back to the old narrator or a different one, otherwise unfortunately we are done with this series.
Benny, he is always getting into trouble and saying funny things.
I prefer the narriator from the first books.
My son loves the box car children books. He really loved the first collection but was disapointed that the narriator had been changed for the additional books... he cant seem to get into them with the new voices.
A great story I very much enjoyed listening to it and the speech and narrating is very clear very very good altogether
