....and I'm happy, because it is a lovely audiobook that will not drive an adult up the wall. As for the music, mentioned by one reviewer, there is very, very little of it, and perfectly fine. Just short clips at the beginning of a story or a few bars during times of tension. There is nothing gruesome or graphic, and thus is suitable for introducing little ones to fine English, a well-done reading, and the core Norse myths. Are far as "dark", my son found the very personal peril of Peter Rabbit caught in a net in the garden more upsetting, and listened to these adventures unflapped. He likes to listen during meal times, and will pick this OVER A VIDEO. Need I say more?
