My 3 year-old loves the axel books! The voice reading them is enthusiastic and exciting and really gets his attention. I wish there were more. After the first time we read one, my son got on his bike and started saying "zip, zip, zoom." Highly recommend.

Exciting and fun read! Especially good for little guys, the sound effects and illustrations are spectacular and the words are simple enough for beginning readers. Perfect for ages 2-6.

My 1st grader was able to read this without much help. Of course the monster truck held his interests.

My grandson loves the Axel books. They are just a little too expensive and the two books could have had more variety in the stories.

My Grandsons really enjoyed Axel the Truck. It's about the adventures of a monster truck. They both read and recorded it with that feature of my Nook. I find that it encourages them to read more when they can hear themselves reading.

My nephew LOVES Axel and he really enjoys the interactive parts. We have Nook time every time he comes here and Axel is the first one to be read.

My almost 2 year old is obsessed with vehicles! I was delighted to find this book for our Nook so we could read it together. After using the Read to Me feature once, I won't be reading it to him anymore! The voice that reads this book is PERFECT! He changes his voice when Axel talks and does the sound effects better than this mom could! We LOVE it! I'll be looking for more Axel books to be added to the Nook store!

I've been trying everything and all I get is errors that the book is unsupported. I have to repeatedly tell my 4 year old it is broken because he keeps asking every night. Right now, I'm wanting my money back, this has just been a headache.

They should let you know it will not work with Nook app. From what I am reading it sounds like you can only hear the story Maybe why i cant at least look at the book since i cant hear it.

Story is boring but my kids enjoy the vrooming sound that Axel makes in his adventure.

They could warn you BEFORE you buy that this book will only work on an actual nook, not the app or on the nabi. Very disappointed.
