David Tennant is an AMAZING performer!

The book is great, but David Tennant brings it to life with such creativity and stellar voice acting, that calling him a “narrator” is the understatement of the century! I’m not being hyperbolic. He brings such a uniqueness to the story, each characters voice, and personality, that I honestly forgot it was just one person reading (more like performing). It’s *chef’s kiss” PERFECTION! I really hope the next book comes out soon on audible because I can’t wait!

Funny and Scary and Perfect for ALL!

This is a review that encompasses the first 3 books in the series. Terrific engaging story perfectly read by David Tennant who's sometimes over-the-top acting could not be better suited. I marvel at his varied voices and particularly fell in love with Squeezejuice and I bet I'm not alone in that. I do not normally burn credits on books less than 12 hours long and I have purchased all of this series. Now I am both anxious and thrilled to move on to the last(?). Highly recommend for lovers of fairytales of ALL ages.

Adorable and emotional!

Sometimes you just want a cute Kids book to remind you of the magic in the world.

Can't get enough!

We LOVE this series. It's been a lifesaver for my 8 year old when (alas) mean mom makes him get off screens. Great performance by David Tenet and story entertaining for adults too. Can't wait for next book!

Best of the series so far!

My 6 year old and I have enjoyed trying to guess where the story might no next and it’s wonderfully unpredictable.

Story and performance were great

I don’t know why they added generic sound effects. They detracted from the story every time.
The book itself was great and David Tennant’s reading couldn’t be better.

Wonderful times three!

Excellent follow up! I'm going that book four is done! I usually don't start a series unless I know it is finished. I stumbled into the first book by accident and got hooked!

Awesome.

Great little series, I relistened to the first two books before I dived into this one and I don’t regret it at all. This is a delightful story. Admittedly the first two books were better than this one, but this one was still wonderful, and I can’t wait for the next book to come out on audio. Now I have an urge to relisten to the How to Train a Dragon series as that one will always be one of my favorite series. Narrator is awesome as usual.
