wholesome, well written and narrated stories

it is difficult to find good wholesome books in the marketplace today and it was a pleasure to find this one. I thought that most of the plots were predictable but still found the stories good. I wish that the stories had need separated by more than a pause. this would have helped me. the narration was excellent as the narrator seamlessly transitioned from character to character with good accent changes. a deeper Mexican accent would have enhanced Carlos but the ability to go from adult to child and back was superb.
