Too short To consider

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

It should have been presented with additional materials
Maybe it would be enjoyed more in a visual format

What was most disappointing about D. C. Morehouse’s story?

It was only 4 lines long

What does Vanessa MacDonald bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

While i appreciate her voice, I don't think it made the experience more enjoyable

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I actually liked the music.

Any additional comments?

I am afraid I was disappointed overall

4-line poem?

this was advertised as a short story, in its entirely. it was not supposed to be as a free sample. this product is mostly music accompaniment for the majority of the 3 minutes, interrupted with 4 lines of verse only. 4 lines of verse doe snot a short story make.

Only music

This was only played 2 minutes of pixilated music for me, not the best intro to Audible.

Not much to it.

There was a bit of "music" (just some single notes of bells) and I thought it was over. Then a couple of lines and the bells again.

Almost nothing

I was expecting a short poem of a few verses, not a single nonsensical verse surrounded by some generally pleasant music.

Is This Really A Book?!?

Would you try another book from D. C. Morehouse and/or Vanessa MacDonald?

If they're all 15 seconds long with 2 minutes of music, I might not.

Has The Elephant and the Castle turned you off from other books in this genre?

It has not made me dislike children's books.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She sounded like she just wanted to hurry up and get her 15 seconds done with.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Elephant and the Castle?

How can you cut a scene, when the reading was less than 20 seconds?!?

Any additional comments?

I wasn't impressed with this "book".
