Critiques

"It’s rare to find a story that combines so successfully a contemporary plot and modern morality with a feel for legend and fairy tale." ( She Magazine)

I will openly admit, it pissed me off

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I have never written a audio book review before, but had to here. The story is running along nicely and then, smack upside the head. The ending, well let's say if I were to ever meet the writer, I will just slap him upside his head for such.

Would you ever listen to anything by Michael Morpurgo again?

No

What aspect of Sir Ian McKellen’s performance would you have changed?

Easily, the ending, as it ruined a great story.

What character would you cut from Dancing Bear?

None

Any additional comments?

Someone explain to the writer, a child's book where many said this belongs, needs uplifting story endings. Not one where the poor child will be left in tears. The world itself has enough sad things for a child to already deal with.

Have Tissues Handy

Brilliant read by Ian. This short story will enthrall you and take you to a special place. The tale leaves us with a powerful message, as it is also an allegory of life. Never lose sight of your inner child. Never forget your roots. One added thought.....animals understand a lot more than we think they do!
