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.

Yea for Rufus!

Where does Rufus M. rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Its one of our favorites.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Of course, Rufus is our favorite. He's a bit scruffy, valiantly determined, humble, sincere, curious and loves his family very much.

What about Christina Moore’s performance did you like?

Moore handles the different characters so well you lose yourself in the story and hardly realize that just one person is creating all these different people.

Any additional comments?

This book is on our daughter's second grade read aloud list, but our younger children have really enjoyed listening to it also.
