Great!

A great recording of this classic story. My children love the funny singing and are enthralled by the story, which is well-paced by the narrator.

What’s the hurry?

Narrator read too quickly, what’s the rush it’s a children’s book. Story made it worth it.

Not my favorite

I did not care for the narration of this story. I think it would’ve made a better impression if I had read it. This is a children’s story and will probably be more appreciated by the age group it was intended. It’s a very quick listen and I am glad I was able to add it to my library.

great quick listen/read.

narrator does an amazing job. the story is short and kept my wild kids entertained for 30 minutes. the story is exciting, and the writing (of course being Kipling) is fantastic.
