Great book, terrible narration.

Jack Prelutsky as an author is amazing. Scranimals has been a family favorite for years. We have read it so many times that we know each page by heart. The vocabulary and rhythm of the poems are utterly brilliant. It's silly while also being clever and funny. The illustrations in the print book are charming.

Jack Prelutsky as a narrator is painful to listen to. What you don't hear in the preview for this book is the author singing the poems after he reads them. It's repetitive, unnecessary and annoying. I bought this book to listen to with my children. They both adore the print book so I thought this would be a sure winner for car trips and before bedtime. Ha, nope. They don't like it either.
