Where are the Pictures?

We have Harold and the Purple Crayon from audible and love the original illustrations that show up along with the narration. We bought this one from the With Synchronized Images category and were disappointed that there are no images to view with the audio! My daughter begged me to buy this one but isn't into it without the images since it is a VERY visual story.

Great story with pictures

My children especially love that the illustrations are included in this narration of Harold and the purple Crayon. I enjoy the accompanying music.

A great book

A wonderful book that I found to be developmental and maturative for a young man coming of age such as myself. I found great relation with the protagonist and author and I highly recommend this book.

Great Story with photos

I love the books in this series and the photos are nice but glitches with my phone. I hope audible adds more in the series soon.
