    "Timeless tale, perfectly narrated."

    This is a marvellous story well told. Originally obtained for my young daughter (who played it often, and remembers it fondly), this gem has been in the family for many years now - and I STILL enjoy listening to it on occasion. It covers many levels really; innocently profound and thoroughly heart-warming. It's a tale of taking risks, going with the flow, the kindness of strangers who trust their instincts, family, and friends. The words wrap gently around you like a cozy, well-loved blanket. Simply put, this is a story that soothes the soul.
