Can't listen to this!

At first I couldn't figure out what this narrator was trying to do with her unbearably singsong voice, then I did some research and realise she is reading for children - her delivery is beyond annoying and I can't listen to her. I really urge you to listen to a sample before you spend money on this oddity! I couldn't get past the second story and am very annoyed, I really wanted to hear these short stories - shame on you Audible for not explaining this is a childrens' book and shame on me for not listening to a sample first!

Awful narrator!

Only managed a few paragraphs. The narrator's voice is dreadful. Great stories I'm sure but I really couldn't get past the way the narrator dragged out the end of every phrase.
