    "not an audio book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Wish I would have read the description closer. This is not a book, it's only music. Too bad I can't return it.

    "NOT an Audio Book!"
    What disappointed you about The Polar Express and Dr. Seuss's Gertrude?

    I purchased this audio book to play aloud for my class during art. The children were so excited, until we realized it was more of an opera than an audio book.


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to return this book. It was a total waste of money!

    "Not the audiobook"

    I downloaded this in a hurry and didn't read the description. My mistake! It's only music. Not sure why a regular audiobook is not offered.

    Story
    "I will be returning it - HIGHLY recommend sample"
    Would you try another book from the authors and/or the narrators?

    No


    What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?

    I *love* this story.... but this is NOT the audio version of the story. This is a singing rendition (albeit some amazing singers) of a version of the story.


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    No - I want an audiobook, not an MP3.


    What character would you cut from The Polar Express and Dr. Seuss's Gertrude?

    I don't understand the relevance of this question.


    Any additional comments?

    I plan on returning this audio book - my kids were not interested in it and actually asked for it to be turned off midway through the 16 minute first performance. Oh well.

    "Make sure you know what you're buying."

    If you're looking for a reading of the Polar Express, please note this is some sort of singing of the story. I didn't realize this when I bought it and was very disappointed.
