Engaging and well-paced

I am an intern in a fourth grade classroom and have used this audiobook for two literature circles. The students (4th graders) love Dufris's expression and character voices, especially when he says, "Jug-a-Rum!" The students are constantly engaged. Those students of mine who read more slowly are able to keep up when reading along with this audiobook, because the narrator is so expressive he doesn't read too quickly.

I will make more purchases from audiobook in the future.

Great Stories!! Still enjoy from childhood!

Loved this book when I was a kid! Still a fun read. I had to hear it again! The narrator was very good as well.
