Dave Barry deffinitly adds to the story, but I didn't read the book.
I liked that the parents didn't freak out with everything. And, that it ended on a good note. My favorite part was the boys giggling while waiting behind the stage, so typical.
Dave Barry infused the emotion of a boy about this boy's age.
This would be a great lite read for book clubs in December, also a good one for the family to listen to on a trip.
Historical & SciFi Book Lover, especially Georgette Heyer, Lois McMaster Bujold, Connie Willis (& New Who). Also books for the kids.
Got this a while ago for my youngest. I was disappointed that the rhymes are introduced by two people who chat about the rhymes and thought that would detract from the enjoyment of the audio. However, youngest completely disagrees with me. She likes it as there are some rhymes she does not know, some she forgot and some she knows well, but are said differently. And she positively likes the narrative parts (says it is like a chatty interview).
These ratings are hers. Of all the audible books I had purchased for her, this has remained a firm favourite.
