A favourite since childhood...

I really enjoyed hearing this childhood classic. The narrator did an excellent job. The story says so much about human nature that can be related to by listeners or readers of all ages. I loved it as a child, and still do.

Wonderful

I read this when I was a child and was eager to hear it once again. The narrator did a splendid job.
