Chester at its best!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Little Big Clockmaker to be better than the print version?

I really enjoyed the print version of this book so I bought the audio version for my mother who is partially sighted - we both enjoyed listening to it, the narration was pitched perfectly and really complemented the story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Egan Bagley is indeed a talented clockmaker and every time I look at the Eastgate Clock I think of him.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This was certainly a book that you had to listen to in one sitting and we enjoyed it from start to finish.

Any additional comments?

Evelyn Winters is a very talented writer and Guy Veryzer did this story justice. I would love to listen to more from this very creative partnership
