The audio version of this story was probably one of the best that I have ever heard. Imelda Staunton changed her voice slightly but effectively to show the different voices of the different animals. Her pacing was perfect for the young children to whom this story would appeal. The sound effects (birds chirping, frogs splashing, music for the fox approaching) made me feel as though I was in the forest with the mouse. I would listen to this story over and over.
What a wonderful children book. Both of my children like it a lot and I can't remember how often I have read it to them. As a parent one could think that the story itself is a little bit too scary but my children had a lot of fun and have never been afraid. The art is well done but could have been even better with more details. Despite of this small criticism I give 5 stars because the story is really cute.
a fantastic book for toddlers
Very animated, creative story, with a twist at the end.
