    Story
    "An unsung classic from Dr Seuss, beautifully told"

    "I'm not going to get up today" is a little known Dr Seuss story but it's an absolute gem that deserves to be wider known. It's a story of a boy who just wants to sleep in, declaring to his parents, the town and the whole world that he's not going to get up today, no matter what they try. Jason Alexander is a great narrator and gets the tone of the story just right, at every moment. I can't recommend this audiobook more. It's funny, it's sweet and the whole thing is marvellously accompanied by sounf effects and music that enhance the story perfectly.

    So, have a sleep in, and, in honour, listen to his book as you settle down for a snooze.

    "Short and sweet!"

    Classic Dr Seuss! Very funny clever lines with great background sounds and "George" does a wonderful job of narrating. A very enjoyable couple of minutes for us adults along with the kids.

    "Dr Seuss has a gift which keeps giving"

    Yes this was a winner. Pleased with Dr Seuss as usual. He has a way with words that is clever and cute touching both adult and child.
