    "Who knew mammals made so much noise?"
    Where does British Mammals rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not the worst, not the best.

    What did you like best about this story?

    hearing red squirrels, rabbits and bats.

    Have you listened to any of Cookie Weymouth’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Yes I've heard others and it's the same, just announcing each mammal. Nothing else to do.

    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?


    Any additional comments?

    although birds are my interest, it's good to hear a book showcasing the sounds of Mammals that we wouldn't usually hear otherwise.
