    Audio books are growing. I have listened to books for months now, But I prefer my books in paperback/hardback format.

    "Repeat Listener Badge"

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

    Story
    "Too short To consider"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It should have been presented with additional materials
    Maybe it would be enjoyed more in a visual format


    What was most disappointing about D. C. Morehouse’s story?

    It was only 4 lines long


    What does Vanessa MacDonald bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    While i appreciate her voice, I don't think it made the experience more enjoyable


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I actually liked the music.


    Any additional comments?

    I am afraid I was disappointed overall

    "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".

    "Only music"

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

    "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.

    "Mostly odd music and few seconds of story. "

    Literally seconds of a book, do not recommend!
    Poor reader for the two sentences she reads.
