Fantastic

2021 52 Book Challenge - 34) A book you'd rate 5 stars

Honestly, I cannot describe how much I love this book. I never knew that there was a book version that the film was based on, but I was so delighted to discover and read this and I was so happy when the film was so close to the book. Its just really great.

Delightful!

The narrator's voice is delightful, perfect for this classic story. My family enjoyed the smart sense of humor, the simple and clear descriptions, and the comfotable pacing of the story.

Still pure gold

As a child this was one of the few audio books we had and for some reason it always ended up with the Christmas stuff, so every December I would listen to it. It’s been 20 years since I last heard it, it’s still as good now as it was then! This is a wonderful audiobook, you will not regret it.
