Best Book Ever! Kate Blackmore
- Amazing lover girl
reviewed by mum and dad
This audio book would rank highly among the many audio books that I listen to with my children.
I particularly enjoyed Eva Ibbotson's view of Hal's parents. Some amusing and sometimes laugh out loud commentary on modern parenting, and the experience that some children have.
The most enjoyable scene in the book was Hal's arrival at his grandparents cottage by the sea.
The book made us all laugh a lot. We didn't cry.
We all enjoyed listening to the book, as a family of parents and children aged 5,4,2. All of the children listened with great interest and we were entertained too,
