We first listened to this story when my son was 6: he's now 8, has listened to it countless times, and still loves it. The cast is wonderful, and the story is very well told. A perfect balance of being true to the myth and adding creative details. We love the characters of the goats, especially. The fact that it is narrated (beautifully!) by a child makes this ancient story accessible and fun.
This story will appeal most to the 6-12 year old range (more the older end of this) My kids loved it, especially the 10yo boy. Even my younger girls thought it interesting enough to repeat often.
Based on the old Norse legend, the story is well written and fascinating. Enough to keep parents listening on a long journey too.
Sadly, this version is let down by some excruciating pronunciation and a harshly accented reader. Still, it rates 4 stars despite this.
