  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Jill | 2/2/2014

    " I checked this book out from the library about a year ago and returned it without reading it. About a month ago we got the audiobook from the library (read my Jim Dale) and IT IS SO GOOD. Lia wants to listen to them over and over again. The story about Debbie the little tabby cat got me all teary eyed. I'm not even an animal story sort of person! "
