A DELIGHTFUL NOSTALGIC ESCAPE!

Really enjoyed this, beautifully read, and took me back to 1951 when I read and loved for the first time. A treat! A definite feel-good book! Perfect for the weird times we are in....

Great story, well read

I remembered loving this book when I was growing up, and really enjoyed revisiting it. The narration here is excellent and lets the story shine, with good and distinctive voices for all the characters. My only criticism is that the audio should have been checked more thoroughly before release, as there are three places where the narration has not been edited properly to remove duplicate phrases.
