I LOVE A GOOD KIDS AUDIOBOOK!! LOVED IT!!
** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
I love a good kids book on audio...and this one was so creative and fun! It addresses a tough issue for kids, Divorce...Kareem hears his parents argue right before his birthday and the D word comes up....Kareem gets very upset and runs away with his dog Lion...he runs into a djinn...an evil form of genie and makes a wish for the world to be a happy place...and poof it gets turned into a world of candy and confections...and his dog gets turned into an actual lion! In this world his Dad is the cupcake king and his mom is the brownie queen...and they are at war...Kareem sees first hand what can happen when people go to war...and ends up learning a valuable lesson...it was a very sweet story, well narrated and I loved it!!!
