    "terrible music!"

    The music is so cheesy. (I didn't realize it had songs, or I wouldn't have downloaded this one.)

    We love the original stories and illustrations--but do not like the commercialism associated with Thomas stories now. If you are like us, skip this one--the songs are terrible (and extemely annoying for adults).

    "Great for kids"

    My young son loves Thomas, so I grabbed this to play for him in the car. The audio quality could be better-it isn't really CD-quality, but the content is very good. The books read here are some of the earliest books in the Railway Series by Rev. Awdry. There is some music mixed in with the reading- if you have watched the TV show, then much of the music will be familiar to you. I like the reader- he reads slowly enough for the story to be understood by younger listeners, and he has very good voices for the characters.

    This is no substitute for buying the books and reading them with your kids, but like I said, it is great for the car. It is also just the right length to fit on one audio CD, which is very helpful.

    "lovely book"

    We are greatly enjoying this Thomas story. My 4 year old listens to it. It has nice music, good sounds, and a pleasant narrator's voice. Well worth the $.
