It made me chuckle a couple of times because it pegged some of my children's bed time antics. For those with out children, you can easily imagine the frustration of the parent of the child in the story. Samuel L. Jackson did a vary good job narrating and I wouldn't mind hearing more narrations by him. Now for the "but...", the cursing in the story bothered me more than I thought it would. Yes, I expected there to be some "F" bombs scattered through out the book. I did not expect them to occur in nearly every other sentence. I am glad that I got this book as a promo because I would have been disappointed, due to the cursing, if I had purchased it.
It is a funny book, but you will not want to play the audio version for your children.
I love reading to my daughter, but this book is soooo hilariously true. Samuel L Jackson has a new calling for reading children's books to adults.
Sam Jackson is an amazing performer. I love his work. However, sadly, he is largely popular for vulgarity in his career.
This story is so funny; but the extreme profanity, in particular taking God's name in vain, robs the listener of what would otherwise be a delightful experience.
I'm only judging on the free chapter, but this selection's delightful vulgarity quickly gives way to disappointing repetitiveness. So maybe one story a night for the little b@$t@rd$.
Samuel L Jackson is the perfect reader for this book. (Second choice: Lewis Black)
I like to listen, read and get lost in a story.
Yes, it's short and funny so there's not much to loose!
There's no other book that compares!
Please add more.
Have never been spoken. I have many many audible titles in my library, most of which are thoroughly enjoyable, and I have never felt compelled to write a review or even rate a book. However, I am the father of an almost three year old son and a girl who is close to a year and a half. ( I refuse to be one of those parents who tells the age of their kids in months, I won't be that guy.) That being said, listen to this. If you have or have had small kids, you'll soil your trousers laughing, if you don't have kids, it's gonna be great birth control. And did I mention it's funny? Real funny?
Hi-lar-ious. And, good for the environment! Just when we start thinking that maybe it's time to have a baby...someone always comes along to remind us why we don't want one. Thanks Adam and Ricardo!
The first two verses are hysterical, and the introduction and narration by Samuel L. Jackson are priceless. It loses its punch after that, and it was only love for hearing the narration that kept me through to the end.
I can't believe someone actually thinks it's okay and funny to swear at kids. Even at our worst, we need to model our best. Go in the bathroom and scream into a towel or another bedroom and scream into your pillow. Kids have enough trouble developing good self esteem and self worth. They don't need parents slinging epithets at them. PS The poetry was quite good if you leave out the F word.
