    "Surprised"
    What did you like best about The Five Lost Aunts of Harriet Bean? What did you like least?

    I was surprised at how lame this book was. I was expecting something much better. The author made it sound like having a large family was a bad thing. The whole story was messed up. It made it sound like the aunts younger days were of Charles Dickens times yet, the actual story was more current times.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The real question should be what wouldn't you have to change?


    Which character – as performed by Charlotte Parry – was your favorite?

    Harmonica


    Did The Five Lost Aunts of Harriet Bean inspire you to do anything?

    It inspired me to write a better version of this book!


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a waste of time, money or credits if you used credits to get this book. However, the person who narrated the book did a good job.
