Publisher's Summary

Do you know every nook and cranny of your neighborhood? How about under your neighborhood?

Do you let your kids walk home from school? It's just a few blocks, right? What lurks in the shadows? In the bushes? Or scarier yet, under the bushes?

Or is it all just happy-go-lucky Huckleberry Finn and exploring and adventuring in your own neighborhood? When do you know the difference? Maybe your kids know. Maybe they don't. How will you learn?

It began as a simple walk home, the same one we did every day after school. But our dog's ball went into something of a hole, or was it a cave? Maybe a tunnel. But are there tunnels in the city? The ball was pretty close to the entrance, but just far enough to be a little spooky. Should we just forget it?

Warning to parents: There are some questionable parenting decisions in this audiobook. It is not intended as a parenting handbook. There's a fine line between making the right decision and making the fun decision. When to choose which? How much do you involve your children in daily decisions? What if they involve danger? But what if your kids think it might be fun? You get the idea. Maybe I need a disclaimer....

You know in scary movies when you yell, "Don't go in there!" We went in. Yeah, I know. Ask your eight-year old why.

This was fun!

Would you listen to The Secret of Kite Hill again? Why?

Yes. I'm a commute listener so I would.

What did you like best about this story?

The fact that the adult, who was supposed to be the reasonable one, enjoyed the adventure just as much as the kids...and the dog.

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

His voice brings color to the canvas

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Bradley did a good job and I would reccommend this book not only to kids but parents who are still young at heart.

Very Entertaining Adventure for all ages

This was a fun adventure story. I really enjoyed the fact that the kids narrated their own parts. For a home/independent recording, the sound quality was quite good.
The story was suspenseful, funny and a tad creepy. Definitely worth a listen with the kids.

The narration was done superbly by the Author and the two children. Great job.

I requested a free preview copy of this audiobook and I am leaving a voluntary and honest review.
