Although the repeated use of the F-word did make me cringe because it is not a word that I use. I had to say that I found myself giggling! It reminds me of the stories that I had to read over and over and over to my kids. (How Baby Birds Balloon Burst by Dr Suess. I HATED that book and all of my kids LOVED it!)
Sam Jackson does a perfect job reading this work. Having struggled with bedtime and a child with ADHD way back when, I can so relate to every thought and nuance. I had oral surgery just before I listened to this and literally burst a stitch laughing so hard.
This little jewel delivers. Belly laughs the entire way! I wish it were longer! Samuel L Jackson does a great job!
I love it when the most versatile word in the English language is used in so many ways:)
While I enjoy Jackson's voice immensely, my sense of irony was aching for a classical British accent.
Ralph Richardson, Burton, and Olivier are no longer with us.....what about Jeremy Irons?
This book brought tears to my eyes, from laughing...if only this had been available when my children were little. Of course you don't read this to your children but oh does it sum up the way most of us feel at bedtime. Samuel L. Jackson is the perfect narrator for this. I will share it with all the grown-ups I know and probably my teenagers too.
I wish I'd had this when my now grown kids were small. I got it anyway and thoroughly enjoyed it. Samuel L Jackson did an awesome job narrating, it's too cute to be believed and should have you chuckling, too (unless you're a puritan, pedant or have absolutely no sense of humor).
