    Listening keeps me reading. Listen while cleaning. Listen while doing the dishes. Listen eating breakfast.

    "Awesome Story"
    What made the experience of listening to Surprise Island the most enjoyable?

    Joe's surprise and the cave kept us on the edge of our seats.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Surprise Island?

    Catching lobsters was memorable because it would be fun to do the same.


    What about Phyllis Newman’s performance did you like?

    She used different voices for each character, and was easy to listen to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Benny was sweet when he kept saying how Joe was his best friend, and then also included his siblings and Watch as best friends, too.


    Any additional comments?

    A great story to listen to in the morning while eating breakfast.
