I enjoyed this true story very very much it had a lot of my hometown in it . Brooksville, Seffner Mango, Tampa, Florida. all of which is my hometown and stomping grounds. I love the story it was back and forth to Africa to Afghanistan and America , It was well worth listening to. I remember the newspaper articles and news on TV of the some of the things the writer talked about in this story. I listened to the whole story all in one day . I just could not quit listening to it . I will listen to this story many more times. I hope you get the chance to listen to the whole story it gets better and better and it is worth every bit of your time to listen. I hope you enjoy it too.😊

Meet the boy who can talk to animals and the man who can see with his eyes closed. And find out about the treasure buried deep underground. A clever mix of fact and fiction, this collection also includes how master storyteller Roald Dahl became a writer. With Roald Dahl, you can never be sure where reality ends and fantasy begins.

I Love that it teaches you a lot of details about animals such as wolves, owls, bears, and so on . I don't like how they say animals worship weird things like American Indians use to and they also bring up witches. this I feel like is inappropriate for children good make-believe stories for adults. I enjoy all the owl and wolf stories this writer has written about.

Someone's been stealing from the three meanest farmers around, and they know the identity of the thief - it's Fantastic Mr. Fox! Working alone they could never catch him; but now fat Boggis, squat Bunce, and skinny Bean have joined forces, and they have Mr. Fox and his family surrounded. What they don't know is that they're not dealing with just any fox - Mr. Fox would rather die than surrender. Only the most fantastic plan can save him now.

I enjoyed all the stories very much the first one was the best with the fox. I like the narrator's accent. The story about The Tortoise has some wrong information . You do not feed a tortoise ( cabbage mentioned in the story ) or iceberg lettuce it will cause them to have diarrhea and die. The stories were good Children's story We enjoyed them. 😃 Happy Listening

This is not a story , This is just two characters that play many characters on Adventure In Odyssey fiddle & goofing around together making a book. I did enjoy it. I just could not rate it as a story because it is not. It is a conversation between two people. It's pretty cool I hope you enjoy it. l did 😇
