Read in March, 2008

We listened to this book as a family on our most recent road trip. It was delightful, although probably a bit too "old" for my kids (4 1/2 and 2 1/2). However, I kept waiting for them to get bored and they never did (this may be due to the thoroughly delightful reading by Andrew Sachs--really, it was amazing). This was Ian Fleming's (of James Bond fame) only children's book, and he didn't dumb it down for the younger set. The writing style, while elevated, is crisp and extremely witty. (I really should read a James Bond book now.)
