finally a narrator worth listening to

For years, I’ve been searching for a good audio version of Johanna Spyri’s Heidi. I've already purchased two other versions but neither is quite right. This historical classic needs a narrator who is expressive without being treacly or condescending and gets the comic elements of the book. Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy in Game of Thrones) nails it.

Beautiful story, terrific narrator

Our whole family, ages 7-47, loved it. Winsome, wholesome story that entertains and leaves one satisfied.

A delightful return to a childhood favourite

Very enjoyable. Narrator has a lovely soothing voice, perfect for bedtime at 0.9 speed. Mispronunciation of a small handful of recurring words eg ‘wondering’ as ‘wandering’.

Absolute joy!

This book is an absolute treasure! Uplifting, joyful and hope-filled. Beautifully written and beautifully read. We all loved it (one adult and a 12 year old girl, 10 year old boy)

Beautiful story well read

A heart-warming story that immediately sent me back to when I first heard it as a child. The narrator was excellent with a calming voice that suited the tone of the book perfectly.

Name the goats correctly please

Heide’s grandfather’s goats ARE NOT called “Daisy” and “Dusky”. Their names are “Schwanli” and “Baerli” or “Little Swan” and “Little Bear” if one must use the English translations.
