Jim Dale's wonderful voice makes this story so nice to listen to on audio cd. Because my favorite books in the series are #1, #6 and #7, I don't often pick up book #2. This has been such a pleasure to listen to when I'm in the car running errands, in my kitchen cooking dinner, or around my home, doing housework. Because of this format, I have revisited details in this book that have played bigger roles in the rest of the series. I've also been reminded how much I love this book, even if it's not my #1 favorite.
