"Narrator Elizabeth Sastre does a marvelous job of capturing the gentle innocence of the youngsters during such a tumult." (School Library Journal)
this is one of my favourite books, and has been for over 20 years. so i was really pleased to find an unabridged recording. except, some of my favourite lines were missing. its possible of course that they never were in the american edition of this book, but i can't really see why that would be. what there was was good, other than hannah's own words in the hymns being unaccountably spoken rather than sung (the narrator obviously knew the tunes), which lowered the humour. but to leave out mark's description of his voice as a long grey man with a feather in his mouth seems a little strange.
It's hard for me to choose. The audio version brings it to life, for sure. But I also have the book and it's enjoyable to curl up with on a rainy day.
Just the whole theme. The performing arts school, the children dealing with a very new side of their family. There was so much to love.
Yes, all the audiobooks in the Shoes series and I absolutely love her voice in all of them. This one's the same, full of emotion and life.
Yes! And I've done so many times, just like with the other books in the series.
I just love it. Don't hesitate, get it. A nice story to listen to whether on a road trip, taking a relaxing break, or just want a short story to read. I only wish there were more!
This book is incredible my daughter has listened to it 4 times and also loves ballet shoes and dancing shoes.
Miss streatfield did a amazing job with this book I would definitely recommend all of her other amazing books.
