The Magical Mystery Tour: The Parnassus!
And it's pulled by a fat horse named Peg (short for Pegasus), followed by a spry dog named Bock, and led by the intrepid Helen McGill and the feisty Roger Mifflin.
This absolute charmer of a book is told from the point of view of Helen McGill, a woman getting on in years (thirty-nine...oh, my!), who, for the first time in her life, does something for herself: namely, buys the Parnassus book mobile in an effort to keep it away from her book loving, suddenly-famous-author brother and goes on the road herself. On the way, she and Roger Mifflin have many adventures of their own, enjoyable conversations, meet delightful people, and, well, just make this one of the flat-out best audible experiences I've ever had. Nadia May nails not only Helen, but every single one of the characters, male/female, gruff/sophisticated, reserved/hysterical. She was absolutely made for this book.
If you get the kindle whispersync version (or with the free kindle app if you don't have a kindle), this is an inexpensive listen that is sooooooo worth the time. Especially as it's so delightful, the smile will stay with you for many a day.

A Jewel of a Novella
Let me ask you this... Are you tired of Listening to graphic sex. foul language, The crippling or mutilation, even murder of another person?
While these do have their place, I would urge you to sit back and enjoy
Parnassus on Wheels.
What a delight to hear. There is everything you could want in this little Gem.
Romance + Adventure + Mystery + Humor, and a wee bit of the blarney... You will love it.
