Lovely story

Really great story, we've enjoyed it. However the music was a bit distracting at times.

Character and history

The story encourages the building of character and is an excellent historical introduction to life in feudal England. It is complex enough for parents to listen along with children, Yet fast paced enough to hold the attention of young children.

Such a great story

This was a great story!!! I cannot stop listening to it. This is at least my tenth time. Audible picked a great reading for this story and I love the added music. Audible truly did a great job telling this story. I love listening to it because I was always engaged with the person speaking as much as the story. This is a very thought provoking story and they definitely chose a fantastic story teller. Thank you audible for choosing this reader and continuing to make me smile. I always will recommend this app.

Very Interesting

My kids and I enjoyed this book. Robin's transformation during the book and the lessons he learns are wonderful. I was happy for my kids to hear this encouraging tale.

Delightful!

Any additional comments?

A fresh, whimsical listen. The songs were perfect, the story was cute and original. The only lack was for a better recording quality.

Kinda rough

Narrator was hard to understand at times. This book was assigned to my kid and the story was not great.

Loved it!

Great story of the time period and a great story telling as well. Loved the whimsical music and overall performance of the narrator. It kept my kids engaged in the story and wanting more.
