Listened to some on a road trip and the kids say and listened. They're normally full mental so this was very welcome!

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