Read so slowly - hard to keep track of the story. you would think Jack Nicolson would be great, but my kids had a hard time waiting every 3 sentences for 20 seconds of music.

Liberty, my wisecracking horse, our old friends Cam, Tommy, Freedom, and I are off to meet some super-brave soldiers in the year 1775. Yep, that’s right. We’ll be visiting with the underdog heroes who fought for American independence, against all odds - and won! But not before eight very real years of danger and uncertainty. Be a part of Rush Revere’s crew as we rush, rush, rush into a time when British rule had become a royal pain, and rebellion was in the air.

Pinocchio, in Carlo Collodi's original version, is an adventure-filled, menacing fairy tale with a moral. Made by the woodcarver Geppetto, the puppet Pinocchio dreams of becoming a real child. But his unrestrained curiosity, dishonesty, and selfishness put him in constant peril.

The reader was great and the story is wonderful. So much better than the Disney film. However, this is clearly a LibriVox recording that someone has stolen and is now selling on Amazon. There are missing chapters and there is even a repeated chapter and then at one point they forgot to it edit out and the narrator clearly says "This has been or LibriVox recording."

My kids (ages 7and 9) love these books and can't wait for the next one. I enjoy listening to them with them in the car. Family friendly for families who love adventure stories.
