Great Stories — Great Performance

What about Robin Field’s performance did you like?

One of my favorite performers on Audible. Never bored of listening.

Any additional comments?

Listening to this recording with my 8-year-old son who studies English as a foreign language. We both enjoy it — the text and the performance. BTW, the text is available free at the Project Gutenberg.
