Loved it 🎃 🍂

I love this book's richly descriptive fall scenery. It really puts you in the mood for Halloween. The author who also narrates this book, did a really good job. At times the audio recording had some static, but it wasn't so bad that it's distracting. I highly recommend this book for kids who love the fun of fall, even the big kids like me.😉

A Really Cute Children's Story w/ Cute Characters

Audiobook: Gus ( Unicorn Daze, Book 1 )

Gus was a super cute short children's story. I think the time was perfect but maybe the age group should be a little older, say 4-7 rather than 0-4. I suspect a little older age group would understand it better and be more entertained. I myself loved it. I think my youngest grandkiddo would enjoy it as well.

The narration by Laura Hesse was good. I've listened to her before and enjoy her work.

A magical Halloween story with a unicorn

This story is a magical Halloween tale that kids will enjoy, and the length is perfect for their short attention spans. Listening to this book reminded me of sitting in the library listening to story time with my kids.The reader (and author) of the audio book has a pleasant storytelling voice. Instead of changing voices for the different characters, she names off the character who is speaking. While I personally found that a little distracting, it might make it easier for young children who have a hard time keeping track of who is who. I love the cover!

Whimsical Halloween maze adventure

More the feel of the song monster mash than the movie Twilight.
This could be performed as a theatrical production.
Will make you want to get lost in a corn maze.

Cute little story

Overall my kids and I enjoyed the story, it was cute and fun. The narrator's voice was a little monotone and parts tended to run together making it a little bit difficult to focus and follow a long some times

Who doesn't love Unicorns and Halloween!?

What a cute story! Brings back fond memories! It's nice to be taken away so effortlessly to such a fun and magical place. Great story and the narration was awesome. I think any little one (and even the bigger/older ones :-)) would LOVE it! Jessie and Gus are a great combination :)

Cute fantasy

This is a cute children's fantasy story which follows the traditional formula of: kid feels unappreciated, kid is separated from family where they meet fantasy creatures inaccessible to adults, kid has adventure, kid is returned to worried family who tries to convince them that the fantasy wasn't real. Pretty routine for adults who've seen a thousand iterations of this formula, but it works for kids. The formula is so often repeated for good reason; it resonates with kids.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Unicorn

This is interesting enough to keep my young niece listen with me and short enough to listen to the audio book in one sitting
