The Harry Potter audiobook series

By J. K. Rowling , narrated by Jim Dale
Ages: 9-12

Veteran Broadway actor Jim Dale created more than 200 voices to portray all the characters in the seven, unabridged audio versions of J. K. Rowlings's Harry Potter series. That adds up to a whooping 117 hours and four minutes of reading time! Dale won a Grammy for his priceless portrayal of Hermoine Granger, Hagrid, Rita Skeeter, Voldemort, and so many other wizards and muggles. Dale even made the Guinness Book of World Records for creating the most voices for an audiobook. Listen and be dazzled.

Bottom line: Don't miss these 100-plus hours of a fantasy phenomenon.
