A. Yup =) and it sounds great- it even has a backing soundtrack!
Q. How much for just the book?
A. At the moment we are only offering a Book+Audio Book bundle for $30 AUD plus postage (depending on where you live).
This is so you can experience the story the way it is meant to be heard (ie. spoken aloud like an old fire-side folk tale). We understand that not everyone is a professional voice actor, so we've gone and found one ourselves =) and it sounds GREAT!
