Very enjoyable book.

Just right for my granddaughter who doesn't stay interested in anything for very long. This is a great fairy princess story about a girl who proved to be a real princess. Young ladies of all ages will enjoy this book. The narration is also very well done. I was given a free copy of this book at my request and have voluntarily decided to leave this review.

Short and Sweet, Perfect for Bed Time

Disclaimer: I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.


It’s the classic story you know and love.

The narration felt like a story being told to you by a loving uncle with an accent. Great for a short, relaxing listen or for young children.

Short, sweet and to the point without unnecessary embellishment.

Your kids will enjoy listening to it over and over again.

My one complaint was the sound quality was just not quite up to par. Everything was easily understandable and it won't detract much. Listen to the sample and you'll see what I mean.

A Sweet Little Story

This was a sweet little story perfect for bedtime. There's enough story here to capture the imagination of your little one, and plenty of room to embellish further. I enjoyed the narration, he had the perfect accent for the story and the recording was well done. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

The original high maintenance woman

This is a story you really need to hear again as an adult. While my daughters felt like they were learning the arcane secret to how to discover a real princess, all I could hear was: here is a person so high maintenance that a pea under 20 mattresses distresses her unto sleeplessness -- could you imagine being married to such a nightmare?

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

AWESOME! GREAT JOB!

Way to go, Clive!

What a nice re-telling of a classic story, wonderfully narrated.

Kids will LOVE it, and I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, short, well-done story.

Can't go wrong with this one! :)

Hearkens to a time when feminine fragility was a strength

Now I am all for girl power, but the all-female future where men have no place is a bit unsettling. Maybe some kind of balance can be struck?

Narration was excellent

A Bedtime Tale

This is the classic tale retold. It's only six minutes long so just right for a bedtime listen. The narration sounded as if Clive Johnson was reading the tale in a large tunnel taking away from the story a bit.

Kids loved it enough said!

Really can't go wrong when the kids loved it and asked for more in the end. Wish it was longer, but they listened a few times so that works for me! Narrator was fantastic btw.

My daughter loved this book

I received a free copy of this book to review it. I decided to listen to it with my daughter in the car on our way to school. She loved it. Looking forward to listening more of this author.
Update: We had a chance to listen to some of this author's books and they are phenomenal. We listened to the sleeping beauty and Aladdin and the wonderful lamp. For some reason my kids love to listen to them in the car and when they are getting ready to go to bed. I will be reviewing these books separately. I would totally recommend parents to listen to Clive Johnson's books.

Easy listening

I listened to this with my son at bedtime, and he and I both enjoyed it. It was short and I think my son enjoyed a different voice reading something to him than mine...
