Great story and he is an excellent narrator, too

I myself listened to his book called, "Graveyard Book" and fell in love with the way he narrates story. When I was searching other books by him, came across with this and thought of getting this to our daughter(9 years old). She loved it, too. Now she is onto Graveyard Book. I think he is one of the best narrator! His voice leads you into the story! Highly recommended.

Great for kids in the car...

...and when the kids come out of the car, it doesn't have to be all over.

I was looking specifically for an audio version of "The Wolves in the Walls" but decided to go with this collection first because it was inexpensive and second because it had so much supplementary material. All of the stories are good and both my son and I love Neil Gaiman's reading voice. The surprise favorite part was the interview between Gaiman and his daughter at the very end.

The only complaint I have is there is no space left between the end of a story and the title of the next, which leads to a very jarring segue from story to story since it sounds like the title is simply a continuation of the last sentence of the previous story. A two-second pause wouldn't have gone amiss here.
