Wonderful!!

I listen to a lot of audible books with my 4th grade son and we love Dean Pitchford's books! The Big One-Oh, Nickel Bay Nick and Captain Nobody are fabulous, and the author does an amazing job narrating them. This book has a lot of heart and is also incredibly funny and makes you want to keep listening. So good!
