Magical story, winsome narration.

Narrator Pearl Hewitt does an incredible job narrating this classic story. Who knew such disagreeable children could be so likable? The battle between the contrary Mary and spoiled Colin had me laughing out loud. The characters, beautifully drawn, were skillfully voiced. Lovely, lovely book.

The moment when Colin realized he was not going to die (just because the others had said so).

Any additional comments?

There is so much in this story for children to learn about life, love and relationships. Also the power to believe in themselves and that nothing is impossible, no matter what negative things are being said.
