Parental Warning: This three-part mystery includes an armed robbery and kidnapping, which are played and replayed throughtout all three parts. Although no one gets hurt in the episodes, they may be too intense for young listeners.
REVIEW: This series has many episodes that teaches our children an important lesson and I'm very impressed by the stories. This is a recommended CD set that gets a 4 1/2. The only thing that prevents me from giving this a 5 star is that there are some episodes that seem to be filler. About 2 or 3 episodes were o.k. out of the 12 but still worth purchasing. "A Perfect Witness", "Preacher's Kid" and "The Truth About Zachary" are episodes alone enough to recommend this set highly. 4 1/2 is not far from a perfect 5. It's very good.
Can't go wrong with Adv. in Odyssey! Nov 20, 2000
WE absolutely cannot make a road trip without our adventures in Odyssey CDs! All 4 of my children - from 5yr to 12yr LOVE these stories (Dad and I too!). This collection has been listened to numerous times. Excellent, positive, moral entertainment that's not too preachy. (twelve 30 minute stories on 4 CDs)
