    "Ruined by horrible background music"

    While the performances by the readers here are great, the incidental background music which sounds like it's all produced by a cheap and nasty 80's synthesiser ruined almost every story. The Lorax was rendered quite unlistenable. Such a shame!

    Story
    "A Classic Favorite..Even Better"
    If you could sum up The Cat in the Hat and Other Dr. Seuss Favorites in three words, what would they be?

    I didn't think Dr. Suess could be made better, this audio did just that!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This was a compilation of favorite stories, so there was something for everyone. Each story was read by a different celebrity. Dustin Hoffman reads Horton Hears a Who, etc.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    I can't choose, I really can't. Although, How the Grinch Stole XMas is my favorite story, of all time!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, dole it out slowly. Listen to a couple of stories at a time, and enjoy.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope.

    Story
    "Cat in the Hat Rocks"
    What made the experience of listening to The Cat in the Hat and Other Dr. Seuss Favorites the most enjoyable?

    My boys (aged 2 and 5) love this book. The characterizations that the different actors give make them want to listen to it over and over. They love listening to it while they are playing, laying down, and in the car. They've got some of it memorized because of the actors. They love it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The boys loved everything.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The different voices, the rhymning, pretty much everything.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No

    "Ageless!"

    I bought this (these) book(s) for ME! Used to read them to my children when they were younger than my grandchildren are now. Dr. Seuss is the Man! Good listening for all ages. You can't grow up until you understand all the messages he presents to be a better human being. I still listen...what fun is growing up anyway?!

    "What is it with the music???????"

    Why spoil great reading and a wonderful book with loud silly music throughout? Someone has been watching too much bad video. Dr. Seuss did not write this with background music.

    "Finding the Book"

    It goes without saying the books are great but I don't care for the format. My son is four and knows which book he wants to hear. This format does not allow you to skip to a specific book.
