To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was so excited to get this book to read to my baby, as it was one of my favorites as a child. I open it up to read and the first page is ripped out. I am beyond upset and disappointed with the quality of this. I knew I was buying used but it said "very good condition" a page missing from the story is poor condition! I will be returning this item.
Buyer Beware! What a nasty surprise when I read the last page in this book to my grandsons! The last pages of the story were not included in this book, so the story ended in confusion and disappointment for us all. (I know the ending of this story as I have read it many times to my own young children, and also my elementary school students.) If I could rate it no stars I would!
What audio and music? The website said " In this e-book edition, Tomie dePaola retells his classic story against a charming musical score." I have no musical score, no audio reading of the book, and the type is so small it is unreadable on a tablet.
No audio (although it says with audio recording) on the kindle version. The pictures are tiny on my iPad mini and zooming in is not an option. It's also not possible to change the layout to show 1 pg instead of 2 pages next to each other. The text magnifier on some pages cover the entire picture so your child cannot look at the picture while you read aloud. I recommend purchasing the paperback. Story=5 stars.
