Just wonderful!

What made the experience of listening to The Elephant's Child the most enjoyable?

Phillip J. Mather's narration of this classic story was lovely, his voice brought this classic story to life. Whether you are old or young, this tale of how a curious elephant child's nose became long is a joy to listen to.

What did you like best about this story?

It was a totally absorbing tale.

What does Phillip J. Mather bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

This is a wonderful tale but having it available to listen to is so much better, especially when it is read by such a talented narrator.

Any additional comments?

This story is a true classic and the narrator bought it magically to life.
