I ordered the the audio version of this book in error BUT it it the best mistake I ever made. Charlie has SUCH a lovely voice and the whole book was a pleasure to listen to. He takes us into a magical land and draws pictures of all that is happening it is like we are there. I can't wait to share it with my grandkids who are 13 and 10. Thank you Charlie.

This is the sort of book that everyone should read, it is easy to read and only takes about 30 minutes.
There are pearls of wisdom in every section of the book that every living person could benefit from, if every one on this planet read this book and took heed in the messages it is trying to get across to the reader we all would live in 'Utopia'.
