Meh

I’ll begin by saying that my family loves these stories so much…as books. I was so excited to see they were on audible and so were my kids. The performance is meh and annoying, but the music is especially super annoying. I thought I was the only one and kept it to myself, but the kids 9 and 5 both said so. Since they are short stories, it made the audio book unlistenable. Such a shame! We’ll keep reading the books though!
