fun book

I received this book for free in exchange for a review.
Short and fun. A variety of animal stories, some just plain fun, others educational.

Funny, Entertaining & Informative

This was a fun informative diversion. I listen with my kids 13, 11, and 9 year olds... and overall it was fun and clean but for younger kids the panda breeding problems will invite the "talk" so be prepared or skip that story either way my kids really enjoyed it. The narration was well done and definitely added to the fun.

short but cute

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I thought this a was short but fun listen. No clue how "true" the tales are, but I was truly entertained. :) The narration is well done, as well. All in all, this was a great distraction for my long commute.

Thought it was cute and silly

This was an interesting listen and definitely fun to hear.Though not something I would normally read, I decided to give it a try and found that it was pretty funny and fun to listen to! Some of the stories were pretty crazy, but my wife and I enjoyed most of them thoroughly. Narrator was pretty good as well.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Cute shorts for quick little escapes

I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this when I got it, but I was pleasantly surprised. I listened to one of these stories a day probably, and they were great little diversions that made me smile or laugh daily. Not only are they entertaining escapes with animal-centric shenanigans, but they even managed to let me learn some things along the way. The narration is fun and Jeanie Talbot really gets into telling these absurd tales and makes a performance out of them (she can really channel the excited pet voice in my head). Thought this listen was a lot of fun and I can see myself revisiting some of these to just make me smile again in the future.

Very Entertaining

Was fun to listen to this great narrator relay these interesting little stories. I am not normally into short stories but this was a definite exception to this rule.

Adorable

What a fun cute book. This book would appeal to any age. It is a short book but packed full of laughter and great info and great stories. It is sectioned off by different stories and so if you can't listen in one sitting it is easy to listen to just one at a time. Jeanie Talbot does a wonderful job of narrating this adorable book. I was gifted this book with the understanding that I would leave and honest review.
