Response to his⤵

Most Americans speak excellent English, and it's a stupid generalization to say Americans speak poorly. It's the immigrants who are trying to learn English, and use this app/site to improve their language. Hope you see this, Private Listener.

Good story

(4 stars)

Very good story and good readers. Just the one chapter had a rather violent scene for kids and I didn't like it. Also the ending was not the best. Definitely not E. Nesbit's best work.

(4.5 stars)

A beautiful story! The readers did a nice job with their various chapters - generally clear and understandable. Thank you.

Better to read than listen

(5 stars)

Story is engrossing and fanciful, but American narrators detract from the whole presentation.
