Enright's stories are awesome.

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

Definitely.

Any additional comments?

Enright manages to write absorbing children's stories without dragging in the usual conflicts and plot devices which fill up and drag down most children's literature. She fills her stories with the stuff of real childhood -- imagined or true -- and kids eat it up. Her stories have been family favorites for years.
