The use of a full cast to record this book definitely put it higher up the ranks of my favorite audiobooks, but I find it difficult to give it a numeric value.
Every major character had a full story arc, including my favorite, who might have easily been left out of the ending.
They were able to give each character a very specific voice, which made it easier to envision them in my mind.
Nipkin's actions toward the end were quite touching, but I won't go into details in order to avoid spoilers.
This book features an interesting mix of mythologies that I think is very appropriate for children's fiction. After all, is it not all stories to them?

In the beginning, I was thrown a bit. My first thought was "This is for kids?"
I had those thoughts because when the mother's backstory was given, I didn't think it was too appropriate for children. Not that it was bad, just seemed disconnected with what kids would be interested in.
But after that, the story dove straight into a magical world of dreams and the afterlife. My favorite character by far was Goblin, a snarky little ghost who longed to be reborn as a human.
The 'laws' of having children is something entirely new, which was refreshing.
Definitely worth a listen for (my) kids.
I have had bad experiences with numerous narrators, but this motley crew did a bang up job, and the background sounds fit in perfectly. Between the descriptions and voices, I could picture it all happening in some animated movie.
Loved it! Great imagination and a nice break from television. Going to play it again for the grandkids when they visit.
imagination and thrills
all of it
The book definetly kept my son's attention. with sooooo many characters and every one having their own distinct voice, my son was able to follow along easily.
I love strange and this was by far very strange. There isn't much to compare it to, so I would say this is a cross between a kids version of Dante's Inferno meets NeverEnding Story.
My son enjoyed the story just as much as I did.
this book was awesome to hear, I listened to it in my welding class and made it's easier for me to congrats. I love the fact that the tool a nursery rhyme and expanded on it tremendously. loved it
My Children have listened to it multiple times. They enjoy the story and the voices.
All of the Characters were amazing and entertaining.
My children were laughing and re-enacting the lines days and weeks later.
