Glad Venturing On It

I am glad venturing on this particular book, it's not often I venture on children's book, it's a surprise find it interesting and engaging.

I would give my thumbs for the author and the narrator as well. The narrator performed so well and find it amazing that he could actually exploring every character in this book, with their own accent. So Lovely!!!

From Movie To Audio(book)

I had watched the movie Charlie And Chocolate Factory a few years back and I enjoyed it. Then I found another Roald Dahl's work on Audible, I just happily spent my credit on it. Now I downloaded it for my children to introduce them the beauty of audiobook.

Wonderful

My son and I listened to this on a long car trip and we were both enthralled! It's DAHL after all, so we had high expectations but it blew us away. The reader puts on all the voices and reads with the right amount of emotion. The 2 1/2 trip felt like 5mins!

Outstanding!

I never read the book as a kid, so was deeply engrossed in listening to this. I was as eager as the kids to keep listening to it. Beautiful story!
