I love these books and David Tennant's narration is charming, whimsical, and extremely versatile. He can do so many different voices for the characters and still do a great job of narrating the story. I keep listening to these books the most.

Loved it. Bill Nigh is wonderful as the lead character. Great fun to listen about the main character trying to make it as an actor.
