He knows a lot of big words, but he doesn't know where babies come from. He's never heard of a stork, but he plans to be a bird when he grows up. He's Superfudge, otherwise known as Farley Drexel Hatcher. And, according to his older brother, Peter, the biggest pain invented. Among other things.

This has a hero for everyone -- mine's the ever challenged mom, my daughter loves the annoyed but earnest big brother, and of course our 4 year old loves the mischevious fudgie. After listening to this we had to read all four books in the series. Thank you Judy Blume!!

Junie B. does her best, but life just has so many interesting possibilities, which often land her in trouble with the teacher and her parents. No matter how mixed-up things get, one thing's for sure, you'll have a good laugh listening to Junie B.'s adventures!

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle lives in an upside-down house and smells like cookies. She was even married to a pirate once. Most of all, she knows everything about children. She can cure them of any ailment. Patsy hates baths. Hubert never puts anything away. Allen eats v-e-r-y slowly. Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle has a treatment for all of them.

This is fantastic. The reader is great and the stories are timeless. Stories about kids misbehaving and adults at their wits end (all with happy endings) keep everyone listening after we've arrived at our destination.

In Arthur's Mystery Envelope, it looks like trouble when the principal asks Arthur to take home a large envelope marked CONFIDENTIAL. In Arthur and the Scare-Your-Pants-Off Club, Arthur and his pals can't wait for the next book in the Scare-Your-Pants-Off series, only to find out when the book arrives at the library that the series has been banned!

Plain pasta for the brain

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 01-13-04

The kids love this MP3 probably because it reminds them of the tv series. As for me, the parent, it's a little dull. The narration is somewhat monotone, the story (there are two) lacks humor and sometimes I question the moral character of these stories -- they often contain sibling friction and teasing. All in all, its an inoffensive albiet tedious choice that the kids will love. A bit like a dinner of noodles and peas.

A Civil War sword, a watermelon stabbing, missing roller skates, a trapeze artist's inheritance and an eyewitness who's legally blind! Encyclopedia Brown must solve cases by using his famous computer-like brain. Try to crack the cases along with him!

We love this selection! It's fun for our seven year old and her little brother (age 5). If you want to be interactive they have paused between the mystery and the solution -- so you can stop the story for a discussion. Great for repeat listenings. Good narration and sound quality.
