This amusing story deserves good readers and consistant treatment throughout. I know they are volunteers but, really, what is so hard to understand about the statement ' the P is silent'? It's too bad that one of the better readers couldn't have read the entire book.

(4 stars)

Some pronunciations are hilarious. Even the Authors name is mispronounced at the beginning.
