Osborne's narration is low-key and well-paced. A great way to introduce children who are reluctant readers or can't yet read to this highly entertaining book series and to reading in general.--Chicago Parent
"Osborne's soothing, beautifully articulated voice and knack for characterization are reliably pleasing.--AudioFile
