I added this book to my cart as part of a series of books I remember reading in gradeschool, and which I remembered more about the emotional reaction I had to the book then the content. I am pleased to report that at 45 years old, the story was delightful as I remember, and the cast was marvelous, enlivening the book with colorful characters whose apparent age and gender matched the protagonists and made the story much easier to follow and more enjoyable to listen to. I look forward to sharing it with my nephew in a few years.

heavy handed, self indulgent acting makes this highly entertaining book an impossible to listen to "performance". Most painful is the condescending narrator. Hurt my head to listen to him. I wish I could get my money back. I know there's a straight-forward audio-book version of this. I wish audible had that. I sincerely hope, for everybody's sake, the people who put this "performance" together NEVER do it again.

Fantastic story of a young boy and a butlers travel to find great wealth in the gold mines of California. Very funny in places and no matter what the butler always wins the day. He is a fantastic character and so believable.
