This story is rich in characters, settings, and story, with deep undertones of morals. Great for children and adults. The reader Andy Minter has a wonderful grandfatherly voice that goes perfectly with the mood of this story.

This was a very good story, and I recommend it for children and adults alike. The reader kept the story rhythm quite well and allowed you to get lost in the story itself.
