This is a perfect picture story book for young kids ages 3-6. My grandson, age 4 1/2, loves it. Audiobooks for kids should ALL include all the pictures, as this one does! Pictures make it great and absolutely worth the price, and these illustrations are terrific. The story is Wiiliam Steig's usual blend of humor, pathos, action, magical elements, strong morals/positive messages, and a happy ending. The narrator is very good. The only reason I'm not rating it five stars is that the narrator is not quite Meryl Streep, and the story not quite every bit as fabulous as The Amazing Bone. Also, although the sound effects (birds chirping, rain, thunder, etc.) add a lot to the total experience, the music is occasionally a tad intrusive and almost competing with the voice of the narrator.
