Lovely story!

What a delightful bedtime story! I enjoyed Peter Capaldi’s enthusiastic and creative reading...the voices he gave the characters were wonderful. A joy to listen to!

An adorable tale with some mystery mixed in

I first came across this story after discovering Doctor Who actor, Peter Capaldi, had read for the audio book. I bought a hard copy online and waited till it arrived before listening to the audio. Mr. Capaldi does a delightful reading performance, from a whimsical tone for the standard narration, to changing his voice to fit each of the male and female characters. Benji Davies, the author and illustrator, must also be acknowledged for his playful rhyming and stunning artworks on every page of his story. This is a highly recommended read and listen. :)
