No illustrations, but nicely read

What did you like best about The North Star? What did you like least?

Beautifully read, no complaints there. But I do wish that it was easier to tell whether an audio version of an illustrated book would actually include those illustrations BEFORE purchasing it. This one seems not to include them.

What other book might you compare The North Star to and why?

The Little Prince is a decent comparison in terms of its message and its fairy tale-inspired style. Unlike TLP, however, this story is both intended for and better suited to an audience of small kids. Mood-wise, I would compare this audio book to Rosemary Wells' A Voyage to the Bunny Planet. Very gentle, calming, dreamy.

What about Tim Curry’s performance did you like?

Curry's approach to the story is warm and gentle. There's great kindness in his narratorial delivery, which will carry most kids through the difficulties encountered by the boy in the story.

Could you see The North Star being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Questions like this one are very silly. I don't see why we can't just appreciate a story as a story. This one works perfectly well as a tale told simply in a human being's voice.
