A cute story. Well performed. Good for kids of all ages, but especially young ones.

Little laughs throughout

Would you consider the audio edition of The King's Taster to be better than the print version?

The only thing you miss in the print, is the unique and beautiful illustrations. Otherwise, great in audio.

Which character – as performed by Fred Berman – was your favorite?

How can you not love a talking dog that humans can't understand?

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Catapulting food!

Any additional comments?

Wish this wasn't the author's only young children's book.
