Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
I recently saw the first Harry Potter movie at the symphany with the orchestra and choir doing the soundtrack along with the viewing. It was amazing! This inspired me to re-read the first book as I haven't read it in about seven years. I decided to listen to it on audio as I love the narrator Jim Dale who read the book. It was a great listen. I loved Jim Dale's voices for the different characters -- although I was surprised by how much I identify the characters by their movie actor voices. You can definitely tell the first book is a children's book. The writing style and plotting are definitely for children. I think I might listen to the rest of the series on audio.
