Fun story!

My 4 year old daughter as I listened to this on our commute to and from school and then in the way to the cabin! She loved it and could wait to get in the car to listen! Made the long ride so much more enjoyable! The story was fun, entertaining and silly. We love the Monster Inc. and Monster University movies so this was a huge hit! Got to love friendly monsters!!

Good for Car ride with young kids.

My kids and I listened to this all in one shot on a long car ride. My 6 year old son enjoyed it and didn't want me to turn it off until it was done. My 4 year old also seemed to enjoy it but did sleep through some of it.

The kids didnt like it.

Kids were bored. We stopped after a few chapters. My kids are 3 and 5 and easy to entertain, but this one could not do that.

Wonderful Story!

My kids are 7 and 4 and they both loved this story! Narrator did a great job, its sweet, funny, suspenseful and has a great moral lesson in the end. This was our first audio book to listen to together and I am glad we chose it!

my 4 year olds favorite story!

we listen to this book in the car and before bed EVERY day! my 4 year old son loves it. He was 3 1/2 when we started listening and it kept his attention even then. The story is cute and enjoyable for the adults to listen to also. The narrator does a great job with all of the different voices. We were looking for an alternative to screens for long car rides and this book has been the best for that purpose and beyond!
