    "Excellent Stoty"
    If you could sum up Flat Broke in three words, what would they be?

    Shows differences between good and bad.


    What other book might you compare Flat Broke to and why?

    Excellent narration. Good book. This has its own identity.


    Have you listened to any of Joshua Swanson???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    wonderful story. Nice Introduction.

    The more stressed at work that I am - the more juvenile my book selections.

    "Entertaining for ages 6 - 40..."

    We loved this series. It helped entertain me and the three kids, ages 6, 7 and 11, on our way to school and back each day. Amazing how a book tape can teach a lesson and keep the peace in the car.
    I hope there will be more books like this added to the series.
