Wonderful story, badly read
I love this series, but Michael York reads this story as if he's trying to keep a badly-behaved class of 4-year-olds entertained on a rainy day. Lots of rather dated "Now children, isn't this fun!" intonations, which don't really work for either adults or children these days.
A bit disappointing, I found the narrator got in the way of the narrative.
