Sintesi dell'editore

One of Newbery Medalist Sid Fleischman's most beloved books, this rip-snortin' saga of a young man and his butler bound for California during the great Gold Rush was just made to be read by a full cast. Our collection of coots, codgers, geezers, and outlaws will have you laughing out loud...when you're not holding your breath in suspense!

Spoon!

I added this book to my cart as part of a series of books I remember reading in gradeschool, and which I remembered more about the emotional reaction I had to the book then the content. I am pleased to report that at 45 years old, the story was delightful as I remember, and the cast was marvelous, enlivening the book with colorful characters whose apparent age and gender matched the protagonists and made the story much easier to follow and more enjoyable to listen to. I look forward to sharing it with my nephew in a few years.

good book, horrible performance

heavy handed, self indulgent acting makes this highly entertaining book an impossible to listen to "performance". Most painful is the condescending narrator. Hurt my head to listen to him. I wish I could get my money back. I know there's a straight-forward audio-book version of this. I wish audible had that. I sincerely hope, for everybody's sake, the people who put this "performance" together NEVER do it again.

Gave my students a great intro to the Gold Rush

If you could sum up By The Great Horn Spoon! in three words, what would they be?

California History fun!

What did you like best about this story?

My students loved following along in their book's while listening to this story. I was able to cover the content on do the fun activities without talking 4 weeks to read it in class. We were running out of time at the end of the year and it worked out great.

This version is a must!

I've heard many parents and kids complain that this book is boring, but none of them have listened to this acted out version with a full cast. My 5 children and I listened to this book 4 years ago, and haven't stopped talking about it since. We just finished it for a second time so that my younger kids could experience it, and my 2 teenagers, remembering it from last time, begged to listen along again. It's the best way to learn about the gold rush culture, but most of all, it's fun! My kids couldn't wait to get in the car and turn it on again.

A great story

My boys listened to this story for school but loved it. They even listened to it a second time while traveling. The characters do a fantastic job and having more than one makes it so much fun to listen to. Your kids won't even realize they are learning about history!

Bravo!

I have read "By the Great Horn Spoon" to my class for many years, but this is the first time I have used the audio book. What a difference it has made. The students were so inthralled! I recommend this to any fourth grade teacher who used "By the Great Horn Spoon" in their curriculum!

Great Fun!

This reminded me of an American rendering of England's Bertie and Wooster. Sid Fleischman delivers a fast paced story while the folks at Full Cast Audio once again prove their magic touch. A great story for the whole family.

Our favorite one yet!

This story was wholesome and fun. The audio book acting was exceptional. I loved that there were multiple voice actors. We couldn't wait to see what Praiseworthy and Jack would do next!

By The Great Horn Spoon! (Unabridged)

Fantastic story of a young boy and a butlers travel to find great wealth in the gold mines of California. Very funny in places and no matter what the butler always wins the day. He is a fantastic character and so believable.
