Wonderful!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

To all my friends with kids - yes. Great story for children and parents.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The boy.

What does Kevin Killavey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Great reading. My kids loved the voices he used for the various animals.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laughed quite a bit...all of us did.

Any additional comments?

Was really surprised at the one review trashing the narrator. We thought he was great.
I would suggest you listen to the sample and decide for yourself.

A family favorite

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It's an absurd little story book but one I remember fondly from childhood, a different recording on cassette was my first ever audiobook! This one is good too, the weird tale holds up for kids today
