A tale filled with high humor and deep humanity, this much-beloved classic springs to new life in a full cast recording that features the author himself as narrator.
"Edward Ormondroyd has written a stimulating, ageless story. It combines beautiful writing, topnotch adventure, and enchanting fantasy." (Chicago Tribune)

Wonderful book. Ruined by this audio.
What a shame. This is a wonderful book had a wonderful story but this audio gets in the way of the story. The different characters voices are unnecessary and feel insincere. The main narrators style is condescending, as if he's telling the story to a two-year-old. This is not a book for a two-year-old. This is not on a level with Winnie the Pooh but more like Harriet the spy or a story and older child can really get into. It would've been much better with one reader who told the story sincerely. I read this to everyone of my children, nieces and those I babysit for is a teenager. I wish audible had let me do it :).
My recommendation is to buy the book and read it to your child yourself. You will both enjoy the experience.
