Shorten Version

This recording cut out all of the extra blah blah that is not needed to provide the details and excitement of the story. Thank you. I really enjoyed listening to this book.

love kimberly alexis!

Kimberly Alexis at so much character to the story. I have read these books since they came out or shortly after they came out and they have become friends over the years that I revisit. listening to them while traveling even my husband enjoyed the books and I was asking about the characters and the narrator. We agree that if she has children or nephews or even friends that get to listen to her they are very lucky.

the m word

I am very disappointed by the derogatory terms used by the author. Using the M word to describe a little person is considered hate speech. Dwarf or Little Person are the preferred terms. It is an ableist slur that goes all the way back to freak shows. Those people were forced to be ogled by the public for little or no pay. They were often beaten or assaulted. Even "successful" dwarves were very poorly treated. The munchkins in the Wizard of Oz were paid less per week than the dog that played Toto.
