Great reading books - Weak audiobook

I was hoping for more from this but really should've listened to the clip before buying. The author reads in a girly, sing-song voice, with very little emphasis or feeling. Fine for younger kids, but I'm trying to balance a 5 and 7 yr old boys requirements.

My 7 year old has read loads of the print books and we really enjoyed them. However listening to them read this way, really highlights the basic nature of the vocabulary (he said / she said / look over there I said / where over there she said ... argh).

Although the boys haven't asked to actually turn it off, they aren't really excited. This feels young and girly, which is a real shame, because the print books are excellent.

Hated it

What would have made Magic Tree House Collection: Books 1-8 better?

I downloaded this for my grandchild and I to listen to, the story was ok'ish but the readers voice drove me nuts. I lasted 10 minutes then had to switch it off. I'm currently working out how to return it.


Would you ever listen to anything by Mary Pope Osborne again?
