What a pity that this book is short on content and form. I remember it being read to me, when I was 10, and it literally enchanted me! Every word had meaning and painted a portrait of the persons, their adventures, their surroundings. You could almost see the book. This quality is totally gone, so has the magic. The storyline is followed drudgingly and grudgungly, with omission of all personal talking to,other persons and sometimes themselves. Never boring. It gave cachet, brilliance and humour to the tale told.
Indeed a grave mistake. A great pity also of Stevenson's very suitable soft voice. Two birds with clipped wings, the book and the narrator.

Thank you so much for having this audiobook in! I have always loved the Little White Horse, and I'm so happy it's available for the blind. The abridgement worked very well.
I listen to a lot of audiobooks and Juliet Stevenson is one of my favourite readers. 'The Little White Horse' is one of my favourite children's books - so what a wonderful match! Sadly the abridgement is not brilliant, and I just wish there was a recording of JS reading the entire book....

Most disappointing. Much of the beauty of this book has been cut out only leaving the bare story I would rather wait to give a child the complete book

I can only wish that this wasn't a full version of the book! Juliet Stevenson spoke brilliantly and with emotions to match what was happening.
this book has it all wonder, fantasy, romance action , happy ending edge of the seat themes
