But where there's a will, there's a way, as Irene proves in the danger-fraught adventure that follows. She must defy the wiles of the wicked wind, her most formidable opponent, and overcome many obstacles before she completes her mission. Surely, this winning heroine will inspire every child to cheer her on.

"Fantastic Story, Read Beautifully"
A beautifully read story about a young girl on a special mission for her mother. It's so well-read that even very small children can grasp and be drawn into the story. Just the reader's voice is worth listening to, a lovely story teller. So happy I decided to download this!
When Irene freed herself from the snow.
Her melodic voice, but also her incredible story-telling skills.
I would rather have Steep's voice than a million dollars. ;)
The narration is lovely. Ms Streep lends a fantastic spins to the characters and gives them voices. This audio is odd in that you get the full story, then the story is REPEATED with tones each time we are to turn the page. Missing something here? So am I! Because this download doesn't have any pictures!
Call me crazy but the publishing team blew it on this one. Ms Streep can't fix this weird error. Otherwise, this is a short and cute story with a good narrator.
