The story of the Prodigal Son is somewhat incorporated in this audiobook, Sir Malcom and the Missing Prince. It teaches good lessons on selfishness, the value of hard work, and love. I have listened to it over and over this summer. Definitely worth the cost!
This is a great audio story and well worth the time to listen. It contains the true and beautiful message of humility coming before honor. Our entire family enjoyed listening to this during a long car trip. The quality is great.
This one isn't nearly as sad as most of the other Lamplighter Theatre stories are.
But like with the others, it still has a touch of melancholy which may or may not bother other listeners.
While I enjoy the quality and style in which they bring these stories to CD, however, the actual stories themselves are TOO sad for my taste. They sit on my shelf for the most part because if you are having a bad day these may tend to make your sad mood worse ( I know from personal experience ).
These would not be good for anyone who is sick, sad or in the hospital -- far too melancholy!
