I listened to this with my oldest son in the car, and we were enchanted with the narration by Scott Sowers of this charming and fun story. We loved the clever way that the characters expressed themselves. We have been quoting this book all week! It reminded us both of the Soup books by Robert Newton Peck. I would love to listen to more small adventures for Popeye!

Funny, a delight

My kids and I have listened to this story several times. I admit that in the fist five minutes I had doubts, and suggested we move on to something else. They protested, and were right. It is a funny, wonderful, and unexpected story.
