A refreshingly clever Christmas story.

As a parent I listened to this first to see if my young children would keep up. I couldn't wait for my alone time to continue listening. Can not stop singing the songs. Splendid.

Magical 🌟

This was a very magical experience for me it made me feel like I was in the story I loved all the magical songs in the book because that just made it even more magical I would recommend this to children who struggle to sleep and mostly sleep with music I chose this rating because the story was excellent because when I heard that the Christmasaurus ate the hunter I was so happy and the way it was read and the performances the songs was truly magical

a real gem

I had to suspend my audible membership for a few months because this was the only audiobook my children wanted to listen to. The musical edition has a handful of fairly funny songs with just enough bump up in volume to wake up any semi sleeping children in the vicinity. As far as single-narrator books go, this is one of the best I've found. Cleanly pronounced, sufficiently calm but with enough emotion where necessary. It's an excellent bedtime audiobook.
