I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
I really enjoyed these books but the books end as real cliff hangers and it can be really tough to know you need 9 credits to go through this series.
What is there to say, I am a 40-something professional man with kids who like to listen to light books while on the bus to work.
My 5 year old daughter is almost obsessed with this series. In this tale, we discover who has Henry and Veronica, more is revealed about the scarlet hand, and oh...I won't spoil it for you. These tales are excellently written and wonderfully performed by Mr. Ganser. There are a great little listen for those longer trips with you kids in the car. I highly recommend them.
This is book three of the series. Start with The Fairy-Tale Detectives. These are very funny stories and have many moral notes to teach kids and adults. Such as every action (magic) has a cost. We have enjoyed listening as a family. I've now got to get book 4 ready!
As the series continues the characters have become vivid in the listener's ears. When I think of this story I think of Clint Eastwood's movie The Good The Bad and The Ugly !! without the cowboys.
We are listening as a family, our kids are 7 and 11. We love that the story characters are familiar but with a twist. The author doesn't give everything away.
Yes! The Narrator was GREAT! The voice of Granny and Puck made the characters extra special to me. I know I wouldn't have felt the same way about them if I had just read the book. I loved the way he would have Puck say, "Old Lady." He delivery was spot on.
All the Sisters Grimm books. We read/listened to them in a week.
The voices! His delivery of the dialog was perfect. I KNOW we wouldn't have gotten as much enjoyment out of the series if we had just read them. I really enjoyed his narration
Both. I was enjoyed this story and these characters so much, I couldn't wait to read the story and get to the next. I was sad when I reached the end of the series. I didn't want to "say goodbye."
Yes, so far all 3 books I have listen trice.
Elvis, Puck and uncle Jake is my new fav!
When Puck got hurt
I love the series; the characters are enchanting and can't get enough of them.I just want the parents to wake up from the slumber and move to new adventures.
I know they are for kids, but I am having a blast listening to these books. They are great for an afternoon of going back in time, when you used to believe in fairy tales.
