This "book" was purchased for my 11 years old son who absolutely loves to read. I TRIED to purchase the Kindle BOOK, but due to technical difficulties (quality control issues) I was left with only the option of purchasing the Audible version. This was my first time purchasing an Audible, so I did not know what to expect. What I THOUGHT we would get was the Audible version in addition to the normal "printed" version. This was NOT the case. Not realizing that it was not included with the Audible version, we fumbled around trying to find the "printed" version. After our fruitless efforts paid no reward, my son was left with but one option, that of LISTENING to his new "book." Yes, he was VERY disappointed!
As for the book, my son loved it! He has READ and enjoyed all of the other books in this series. As an extra note, while we were in Walmart yesterday, my son found a copy of this same book and inquired of me if he might purchase it. When I reminded him that he had the Audible version, he stated, "Yes, I know. But I like to actually READ the book and look a the pictures." To me, this spoke volumes!
Audible is an excellent format and, I'm sure, fills a very necessary void for those who may be significantly visually impaired, making reading more of a frustration than an enjoyment. Had I realized that it did not include the printed version, I would not have made this purchase.
