Wonderful!

Well-written stories and outstanding narration make the Henry Huggins and Ramona series high-quality listening entertainment. Neil Patrick Harris does an amazing job with the Henry Huggins stories and Stockard Channing shines in the Ramona series. My 5 year old and I have both enjoyed them immensely. You won't be disappointed.

This was one of the books we listened to as a family on our first road trip to New Orleans from Chicago. It was definitely one of the top 3 favorites of the kids and enjoyable to us as well. Nice to share a story that I loved as a child, brought to life by the wonderful and witty narration of Neil Patrick Harris.
