Breakdown of Book

3 Chapters: in British accent. Narrators are excellent!

Chapter one: Has about 7ish short "stories" that you would have to know to get the joke and they all end with the character enjoying a book. For example: Goldilocks and the three bears. The short story goes like this. Goldilocks says "I want more out of life", then the baby bear says "someone stole my porridge". Then mamma bear says "my chair is messed up". Then papa bear says, "My beds' under stress", then Goldilocks says, "I'll make it better by reading you my favorite book!" and they all agree to sit down and read the book. Then the story ends (without actually reading the book) and onto the next act with similar characters and the exact same ending. (abt 8.5 minutes)

Chapter two: A cute song about "My Favorite Book" and the joy of reading (abt 3 minutes long)

Chapter three: same song as chapter two, but karaoke style with no words. (about 3 minutes)
