  • (1) Naxos Audiobooks Classics on CD |description =

    Famous last words if I've ever heard them. I was sure bringing along a bunch of books would keep the kids settled on our last road trip. They love to read, I figured. What could go wrong? But there was one thing I wasn't counting on: the heartbreak of motion sickness.

    We lost half an hour cleaning up little Emma's accident. And my car still hasn't lost the odor.

    Lesson learned. Next time, we're bringing along a stack of Naxos Audiobooks Classics. You can choose the swashbuckling Epic Adventures, Treasures and Adventures & Storytelling Magic bundle, with the likes of King Arthur, Robin Hood, and Treasure Island. Or the sparkly, fairy-dusted Happy Endings, Tales of Friendship & Enchanted Worlds bundle, with Anne of Green Gables, Thumbelina, and Peter Pan, among others. Each bundle features full-length recordings of 12 time-honored kids' classics read by professional actors, or at least professional audiobook readers. I mean, they must've gotten paid, right?

    For all their drama and action, there's one adventure you won't find in any of these audiobooks. It involves a rest stop, a handful of paper towels, and all the suds you can squeeze out of the hand-soap dispensers in the bathroom. Believe me, that's one story you don't want to hear - or smell.
