Reviewed by Kristie I. for Readers Favorite “Despicable Me: The World’s Greatest Villain,” written by Kirsten Mayer and shared in an audio version, is entertaining and will delight children. Gru wants to be the greatest villain; however, his greatest nemesis Vector is also trying to be the greatest. Gru wants to try and steal the moon as this would be the greatest act. However, Vector is trying to steal Gru's Shrink Ray and the moon away from Gru. Who is going to be the greatest villain of all? I enjoyed listening to the audio version of this book and children will as well! Many children are familiar with and fans of the movie “Despicable Me,” so having a book based on these characters is a great way to encourage children to read and want to read. The voices that are used for the various characters are well-done and entertaining. I especially loved the various accents that are used. This could be a great audio book to use with children in a small group setting as it will stimulate and work their audio learning skills. A discussion can take place afterwards about the story and how the characters each wants to be the greatest. Since it is an audio version, this would be a great story to take along on a trip as it is short. It is sure to entertain children everywhere.

My son was so excited to purchase this book. I allowed him "1" book on my Nook. I am so disgusted that I was allowed to purchase it but am not allowed to view it on my new nook. I can't even get a refund, because my cashier is siberspace. Every time I phone B & N support I'm given a run around for 1.5 hours & get little to no results. I'm insulted by being told, I must phone back & follow up. This is not a mom & pop company. Get it together before you advertise to the masses.

Ok for the ones that were dissappointed because its not a "read to me", if it was a "read to me" then it would say it is. But as you can clearly see, it doesnt say that it is a "read to me", SO ITS NOT. Stop whyning and have some common sense.
