    "a must listen!"

    Max gets sent to bed without dinner, and rather than spiraling down, he lets his imagination take over. It is a simple, but great premise. What makes this book special is that it demonstrates how a child can channel his negative emotions into imagination.

    This book is a true classic, one that i totally remember loving as a child. i remember our town librarian reading this to us aloud, and she seem to have a way to make the whole book come alive....You MUST check out the audio version of it, the drama and narration really help to bring it alive, while still letting the young person build the images in their own imagination.

    "Nostalgic and Magical."

    Four award winning children's books bundled in this package. This was the first audio book I download for my five year old. She listened to it on my kindle again and again since. All of the stories are captivating, well read and dramatized with music, but Where the Wild Things Are is the clear favorite. This purchase was such a success, I've downloaded a few more, and yet she still chooses this one to listen to. All four are classics, and the audible format is a great way to introduce or reinforce these stories.

    "Wild"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I just didn't care for the narrator. Personal preference.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    NOne


    What aspect of the narrators’s performance would you have changed?

    Not sure. Voice was harsh and the kids were very frightened.


    Do you think Where the Wild Things Are, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Doctor De Soto, & Owl Moon needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No

    "Not a great mix"

    This collection was not a great mix. I purchased it for "Where the Wild Things Are" and "Owl Moon" assuming the others could not be that bad. We rarely listen to "goldilocks" and "Dr. Desoto" we have not listened to it at all. Suggest you purchase the books seperate here. "Owl Moon" is perfectly narrated in this by the author and "Where the wild things are" is not bad

    "Worth the money"

    This is definitely worth the money. Owl Moon is a beautiful story, beautifully told. Doctor DeSoto is charming and fast-moving. The other two are excellent, as well.
