Jason, a typical ten-year-old boy, has grown tired of the traditional "manger story" and is pretending to blast it to bits with Captain Chaos and his manger blaster.

Jason is sent to his room where an unexpected adventure awaits him as he comes face to face with Captain Chaos. The spacehero shows up in answer to Jason's wish... to rid the planet of the manger and to allow Jason to experience what the world would be like if the baby had never been born.”

These audio books are the perfect thing to listen to as I travel up and down the roads to and from the gymnastics gym. Because they are in MP3 format I could quickly transfer them to my phone from the computer which was super simple even for the not so computer savvy (at times). We also received a physical copy of The Bishop’s Dream on CD.
We have truly enjoyed these stories and preparing our hearts for the upcoming Christmas season! I do hope you will check out the other reviews and see if this is something you would like to add to your family’s audio book collection. To read the other 49 review, click on the banner below.
