Narrator's fake accent a huge turnoff

I don't love this like other McCloskey books. The story is okay, and the kids liked it. But the narrator uses a fake hillbilly/southern accent that not only grates to listen to, but makes all the characters seem slow-witted and unintelligent. Quirky doesn't have to sound inane. Really can't recommend this audiobook.
