Excellent reading of an excellent book

I love the brilliant and seamless way this talented husband and wife team shared this reading. Thank you! Oswald's manly, hilarious narration carries through this book in much the same tone as Treasure Seekers, as he and his siblings land in one ridiculous, laugh-out-loud adventure after another. Truly a worthy sequel. i would love to see a talented reader or two take on "The New Treasure Seekers", the third in the series, which is on librivox but has not got the reading it deserves.

Great Readers!

The people who read this book did great job! I think the Treasure Seekers is a better book, though.

Great book! Readers are good, although not as good as Karen Savage. Alan and Hazel pronounce clearly and make the book easy to listen to. Makes a lot of references to the earlier book, The Treasure Seekers, so I would read that first. The next book is called The New Treasure Seekers, which I am excited to listen to although not excited that it is read by different readers. ☹️

loved it!

Ok, just want to say . . . This was awesome! The readers made the made the book so much more fun, and I've always love E. Nesbit's books, so it was not disappointing. At first the readers were a little weird, but after a while you get used to it. ( the last star above wouldn't turn blue, otherwise I would've rated this book five stars).

Hazel and Alan, you are great! Two narrators make this book even more delightful!! My 7-year-old daughter and I really appreciate your thoughtful telling of this sweet, hilarious tale. Tell Smudge that we enjoyed his efforts, as well. 😂 We can't wait to hear more stories read by you both. 💗

Hilarious, enchanting story of British children trying to do good deeds on summ…

I loved listening to these two readers! Excellent diction and expression! Besides that a British accent is lovely to listen to, it is highly appropriate and ( I think) necessary for a British story.

lovely story, beautifully read!

Another beautiful novel by E Nesbit, about the everyday adventures of childhood. Very smooth reading by this husband and wife team - I could have done without the doggy sound effects, but overall a fantastic job which does justice to Nesbit's story!
