My brothers love the tv show so when they saw the ebook in the shop they freaked out !!!! I have the sample and hope to get the entire book soon!!;)
Very disappointed. Disney has issued other read-to-me books that actually use character voices. This is not one. I might be anle to forgive that except the reader actually has no change to the character voices. To top it all off, there is no page turn indicator. For children who don't read yet, it can be confusing and frustrating. For such a high profile disney show, this book was very disappointing.
