Mimi laid the box on the bench and opened it carefully. Inside were rows and rows of coloured pastels that shimmered in the light. She rolled them under her fingertips and her imagination began to fill with amazing pictures.

Thrillers, Children's' fiction, Shakespeare...good Narrators "make or break" for me though. Love sharing a listen with my 10 year daughter!
My daughter enjoyed this story. Its a lovely performance. Nothing to deep. A bit of a moral, but all well in the end.
