I was shocked at one point.
Any additional comments?
I have to say that I would listen to this every so often. It wasn't one of my favorites in the series but it wasn't the worst one.
The narration largely ruined this book for us. Having previously listened to a BC book by Phyllis Newman, we probably had super high expectations. The voices are like Sesame Street characters--this is not a compliment! Dreadful, forced, and unbelievable. The story was ok, but might have been better.
