I was disappointed in Bing Crosby's narrative. As I've always enjoyed Bing's music, I was eager to hear this version by Bing, but found his voice to be quite monotone. His inflection and tempo for the different "voices" were so similar, I had difficulty in identifying which character was speaking. It was like a bedtime story, I had trouble staying awake. The content is solid, I would pick another narrator.

I liked the book but could NOT the sound effects that were added it made it really hard to hear the narrator's voice.
