Great Reading of a really charming story

My 5 and 7 year old sons LOVE this book. The story touches on so many things near and dear to children that you don't even notice that it was set during the WWII era. My wife and I found our selves chuckling and rooting for Rufus right along with our kids. Perfect for long rides in the car!

For a frame of reference- we also loved the Stuart Little reading narrated Julie Harris.

Better With Every Listen

If you could sum up Rufus M. in three words, what would they be?

This is truly a classic - and an excellent book for early elementary boys who can totally relate to Rufus. I love it more each time we listen to it - the narrator is excellent.
