Chico is a charming main character, and the story itself is light, amusing, and entertaining. I have enjoyed many of this author's narrated stories already, so I succumbed to the temptation of immediate purchase without listening to the sample.
This narrator sounds like he is doing voiceover for a rather boring nature show, his voice holds none of the nuances of expression one would expect in a story about humans instead of gerbils. I listened for about 20% of the narration, after all sometimes narrators do improve as they warm to the story. But to no avail, I simply could not finish, this lovely story was rendered boring, and I intend to return to Audible for a refund.
I expect more than someone simply reading a story aloud when I purchase an audible story. I expect a performance, why else would I spend money?
I cannot recommend this audiblized story to anyone. By all means read the ebook, Ms Cooper is a very imaginative storyteller.

The narrator was not very good and as a result I couldn't really get too involved in the story.
