Cheaper By the Dozen

Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: Listening Library (Audio)

Date: September 2003

Duration: 6 hours 5 minutes


Count 'em–a dozen carrot topped, freckle-faced kids. Dad, a jovial optimist, successful inventor and efficiency expert is fond of doing his work at home. Mom, a psychologist, is busy putting everything she knows into practice.

Listen along and discover the strange things that happen when Dad's experiments run awry…how Frank Jr. gets left behind at a roadside restaurant…how the whole clan has their tonsils out en masse…experience a first date with Dad in the backseat, or treeing a peeping Tom...You can be sure they're not only cheaper, they're funnier by the dozen.

    I bought this for my 10-year-old son thinking it would be fine for him. It has filthy language (swearing) and is unfit for a child or younger person to listen to.

    I love this book! I picked it because I had always loved the 1950's movie based on this charming family with Clifton Webb

    I pick my nine year old granddaughter up from school every day. We both like to listen to audiobooks on the 30 minute drive home. Many times because of her age and the age appropriate content of the book that we are listening to I want to jump out of the car for some relief LOL. Although there were things in Cheaper that she didn't understand because of the era of the story, it gave us lots to discuss. A delightful book for both of us.

    What fun! Makes me wish I had 11 siblings. The narration was great also. I do wish the few cuss words had been left out. They "cheapen" the story.
