Genres:

  • Heidi B

    great story and narration.

  • Randal T

    Loved it!

  • Nikki Larter

    Reasonably entertaining but not a lot of character development. The narrator was reasonably pleasant but he annoyingly mispronounced some words like monsieur

  • Nathan Licciardo

    Great classic tale. Yes there are some mispronunciations throughout, but they are minor in comparison to the overall quality of the narration!

  • Elizabeth Pedersen

    are commenters referring to mispronounced Indian words such as Tooele? which no one could pronounce unless they lived there... I thought it was well read and a good story!

  • Diana Franklin

    Enjoyed listening to this version! The English accent helped to remind me that this was not an American view point, and that Disney had nothing to do with this????

  • Rowdy Nelson

    Some mis pronounced words but I assume it's based on a British pronunciation .

  • Lauren Hudson

    What's the deal with all the mispronunciations? The narrator regularly mispronounces words.
