Mr Wicker's Window

Mr Wicker's Window by Carley Dawson
By: (1910-1977)

When Christopher Mason walked into Mr. Wicker's antique shop, he had no idea he would soon be embarking on a marvellous journey to China to find a wonderful tree made of jewels.

I don't know if this gentleman has a speech impediment or what, but at times he totally skips over words and/or flubs his way through them. While his attempt at voices is appreciated, he needs to learn how to cleanly read something first! VERY ANNOYING that an otherwise good book is ruined by the reader who clearly thinks too much of himself!
