My kids ask for this story all the time.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it is a good story and entertaining to listen to.

What does Rex Robbins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It feels more animated than when I read it.

Any additional comments?

Love all the background music. Really adds to the feel of the story.

Boring for mommy , great for the kids

The kids love the story, they said it was sad at first but has a happy ending. Great for bed or before nap time.

Excellent classic story and production!

Any additional comments?

The Weston Woods productions for young children are wonderful! Please add more of these and similar productions by Scholastic, etc. (classic picture books with narration) to Audible catalog. <br/>

PICTURES INCLUDED!!

This is a perfect picture story book for young kids ages 3-6. My grandson, age 4 1/2, loves it. Audiobooks for kids should ALL include all the pictures, as this one does! Pictures make it great and absolutely worth the price, and these illustrations are terrific. The story is Wiiliam Steig's usual blend of humor, pathos, action, magical elements, strong morals/positive messages, and a happy ending. The narrator is very good. The only reason I'm not rating it five stars is that the narrator is not quite Meryl Streep, and the story not quite every bit as fabulous as The Amazing Bone. Also, although the sound effects (birds chirping, rain, thunder, etc.) add a lot to the total experience, the music is occasionally a tad intrusive and almost competing with the voice of the narrator.

Grade: A
