    "Classic story, good narration, poor audio"

    Good: The story - the kids liked it and laughed at many points. The narration was also good.

    Poor: The audio mixing. At many points, the volume drops too low for listening in the car.

    "Definitely not for toddlers"

    What a ghastly story, that starts with three torturous chapters, covering parents eaten by wild animals, child slavery and witches. Seriously.
