Wonderful rendition of this story.

I have listened to several versions of the story. one of them is the full book narrated by John Keating and this is more of a concert with musical interludes and singing that helped bring the story to life. I did miss some of the detail that was in the book during Joey's time pulling the ambulance wagon during the war. but this is a very enjoyable story and with your time. if you want to get deeper into the story listen to or read the actual book. he's short and very enjoyable.

Beautiful rendition of a fantastic story

The music enhanced the narration for me and painted the pictures. I had read the book before and this was a lovely presentation.
