a real gem

I had to suspend my audible membership for a few months because this was the only audiobook my children wanted to listen to. The musical edition has a handful of fairly funny songs with just enough bump up in volume to wake up any semi sleeping children in the vicinity. As far as single-narrator books go, this is one of the best I've found. Cleanly pronounced, sufficiently calm but with enough emotion where necessary. It's an excellent bedtime audiobook.

Christmas delight

This story about one wheelchair-bound boy's Christmas adventures with a rare dinosaur (which has been made even more delightful by its accompanying soundtrack) is sure to delight youngsters and the young-at-heart alike. Tom Fletcher has artfully painted a magical Christmas world where any dream can come true if only you believe in it enough.
