I second Chitty Chitty Bang Bang--my boys enjoyed it so much that even after listening to it on a longish trip they insited that we bring it inside so they could listen to the end.

I also loved, loved Skulduggery Pleasant - thank you for that recommendation a while back.I just started listening to The Schwa Was Here. Have you tried that? Very funny. I think you your boys might enjoy it a lot.


Thank you for the recommendations! I have a 13 hour ride with the kids coming up and need some new books on CD to keep us sane. Our favorite so far has been The Tale of Despereaux read by Graeme Malcolm.I thought the narrator for the Percy Jackson series was horrible though--everything was read in exactly the same tone. My husband remarked that you couldnt tell when the book got exciting because the reader said things like I ate a piece of toast with the same intonation as I stabbed the hellhound through the belly. Well save those for reading out loud ourselves to the kids.


My favorite audiobooks are the Oz stories - but they can be hard to find, often only on cassette. Im interested to see you recommend Geronimo Stilton. Ive been doubtful about getting those for the library b/c theyre so heavily illustrated. Do they work well without the illustrations?


I am listening to Sabriel by Garth Nix read by Tim Curry right now and it is the best audiobook Ive EVER heard.


The YA audio list is coming soon - I did NOT know Tim Curry read Sabriel, that is a good tip! The Schwa Was Here is another one Ill check out - we dont have it in our system so Ill ILL it.Geronimo Stilton is fine on CD. Edward Herrmmaann has such a terrific voice you dont miss the illustrations.And yeah Kate I loathe the narrator on the Percy Jackson books, but the stories are so good, were addicted now!

What a great list of audio titles! I had no idea Tony Shaloub read Cricket. Thats very good information to have!
