This is exactly what I was looking for from Audible: a narrated picture book. I have a kindle fire and I want the kids to see the original pictures and listen to a great story teller.
Where are the other ones like this?! I don't even see anything in the description that indicates that the pictures change as the story plays... If anyone knows, please help!
Spending your time out in your room without dinner...a perfect time to slip off and rule the monster world. My children and I love this book so much. We have read it a hundred times. The audiobook is a joy to listen to and my kids got lost in the reader's voices. We highly recommend this audiobook for your children ages 2-92!
I haven't seen these before, you know, the picture books on audible that have picture changes corresponding to the story as you listen to it. It's a shame that the current version of the iphone app has giant buttons blocking the view of the pictures. Why no hide option? For this reason, this and any picture book on audible becomes a bit of a waste of money for such a short audio clip and minimal visual experience. Fix the problem and the experience would be much improved.
This is always FUN to read to your kids. But if YOU'VE never heard it read before, I strongly recommend that you download this and listen to the narration. Both you and your child will love it, and it will inspire your reading in the years to come.

I love that my son wants to listen to his favorite books when we're in the car, and Where the Wild Things Are is always his #1 pick. Even better, he gets to see the illustrations from this beloved classic while we're listening, and it's just the right length to get us to the grocery store!
I remember reading this as a child. Listening to it years later, I am unenchanted with the story. The narrator made great growling noises but the way it was done did not enhance the story in my opinion. I didn't care for the music either. Overall a less than stellar performance but it may be enjoyable for kids.
My daughter loves this book so that's really all that matters. I like the way it has the pictures with the story. I think she enjoys it more because of that.
A bookworm since a child. Love audible books.
Fun, imaginative, silly.
The story itself was fun and well written.
Boy become the king of the beasts.
The narrator did an excellent job of reading and roaring. I thought the music was a bit too loud in places and distracted from the story. I thought that this book has been one of the better children's book that I have listened to with Audible.com. The pictures were an added surprise. Good job.
