    "Great Reading of a really charming story"

    My 5 and 7 year old sons LOVE this book. The story touches on so many things near and dear to children that you don't even notice that it was set during the WWII era. My wife and I found our selves chuckling and rooting for Rufus right along with our kids. Perfect for long rides in the car!

    For a frame of reference- we also loved the Stuart Little reading narrated Julie Harris.

    Story
    "Yea for Rufus!"
    Where does Rufus M. rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Its one of our favorites.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course, Rufus is our favorite. He's a bit scruffy, valiantly determined, humble, sincere, curious and loves his family very much.


    What about Christina Moore’s performance did you like?

    Moore handles the different characters so well you lose yourself in the story and hardly realize that just one person is creating all these different people.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is on our daughter's second grade read aloud list, but our younger children have really enjoyed listening to it also.

    "Charming"

    Charming series of related stories and well-narrated by Christina Moore. My eight year old and I were previously listening fans of Pinky Pye and The Moffats, and listening to this was like returning to old friends.

    "It must be good...."

    It must be good.... my 5yo son has been bugging me all afternoon to let him listen to some more.

    Personally, I love the audiobooks that are 2+ hours in length because they give me more bang for my buck. This one fits the bill perfectly.
