I just loved “The Christmas Cave”.
Author David R. Bashears has written a novella that has a broad appeal not only for pre/tween/teens, but adults as well. The audio production, narrated by Dan Absalonson, sets the stage for an absorbing listening experience. His vocal performance is the perfect touch to this unique tale about siblings Jack and Amanda, as they are drawn into an daunting adventure fifty years in the making.
I appreciated genuinely not knowing where the plot would lead to next, and enjoyed the warm and compelling narration style Narrator Dan Absalonson provided throughout the production.
I highly recommend this audiobook to people searching for a unique tale in celebration of the power of family, friendships and the holiday spirit.

Everyone hears about the Christmas Cave but nobody has seen it. Jenny, Mike, and Bill decide to go find it and although Jenny remembers seeing the bright, gorgeous, blue, red, and green lights, she cannot remember how they got there or how they lost Bill. He ran ahead and just disappeared.
Nobody has seen it since then, even though they have searched for Bill but somehow the myth has still spread about this wondrous place.
Years later Jenny's grandchildren come for a visit and hear about the myth. Being kids they make a plan to go find the mysterious cave.
This is a really cute story, told over a little more than one day. The caves have been searched and searched before and after Bill disappeared but no evidence has shown the cave really exists. The kids are not put off track, of course, and decide to venture in.
This young adult is a light hearted mystery. Quite short but cute. There are a few heart-stopping moments but for the most part this could be told to anyone.
Narration by Dan Absalonson was good. Soft and quiet. It reminds me of something that would be perfect to listen to on Christmas Eve with the kids. The production was also good, no weird noises. I can't remember if anything else was added in but there is when part, near the end, where in the story someone burps, so the narrator actually burps! I would prefer to skip those types of noises but it was just the once (that I can remember) so it did not take away from the story.
