Fun for kids and adults

Very imaginative. Great visuals for kids. Narration was clear and clever. Some swampy monsters and underwear talk, but the boys loved it.

Disappointing

I've been a Bill Harley fan for about 15 years, having seen him perform at story-telling festivals, and other venues.

My kids (7, 9, and 12) like him too.
We listened to this recording on a car trip and were all disappointed. The material just wasn't very funny or interesting. My kids said it was "just dumb".
After listening to a half hour of "Blah, Blah, Blah", and a half hour of James Michener's "Alaska" they said they would rather listen to Michener.

My Son's Favorite

Where does Blah Blah Blah rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

We just started listening to books for kids, but this has become my 7yr old son's favorite.

What did you like best about this story?

He especially enjoyed "King of the Clams" creepy and fun.

What about Bill Harley’s performance did you like?

He's having as much fun telling the stories as we are listening.

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

Sure. The stories are short, about 10 to 15mins each. But we usually fast forward to "king of the Clams" LOL

Any additional comments?

We will definitely be looking for more books by Bill Harley.
