Too short To consider

4-line poem?

this was advertised as a short story, in its entirely. it was not supposed to be as a free sample. this product is mostly music accompaniment for the majority of the 3 minutes, interrupted with 4 lines of verse only. 4 lines of verse doe snot a short story make.

Only music

This was only played 2 minutes of pixilated music for me, not the best intro to Audible.

Repeat Listener Badge

Perfect if you want the Repeat Listener badge and not have to buy a short book.

Not much to it.

There was a bit of "music" (just some single notes of bells) and I thought it was over. Then a couple of lines and the bells again.

Almost nothing

I was expecting a short poem of a few verses, not a single nonsensical verse surrounded by some generally pleasant music.

Is This Really A Book?!?

Would you try another book from D. C. Morehouse and/or Vanessa MacDonald?

If they're all 15 seconds long with 2 minutes of music, I might not.

Has The Elephant and the Castle turned you off from other books in this genre?

It has not made me dislike children's books.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She sounded like she just wanted to hurry up and get her 15 seconds done with.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Elephant and the Castle?

How can you cut a scene, when the reading was less than 20 seconds?!?

Any additional comments?

I wasn't impressed with this "book".

Music and one sentence

Very disappointed. I always get a hold of any kids books I can and review them to ru and help the author. Was very disappointed in the fact that this "story" was nothing but music and one sentence.
