The bully learns a lesson
I suppose it gives children too young to read the book themselves the chance to listen to it, but both versions are great.
I loved the fact that it sends a very important message about bullying. The author explains the meaning of the saying "Beauty is only skin deep," as Hershey is a big, handsome cat, but inside he is a bully, who terrorises Nomi, the cat who lives with him, and other smaller animals.
However one day, Hershey gets his comeuppance, suddenly, he is the one whose scared and needs help. For the first time, he’s no longer in a position to be bully. However, luckily there are nice kind cats, and when Nomi and Tyson discover his problem, they help him and teach him a valuable lesson at the same time.
When Hershey learns his lesson and is humbled by Nomi and Tyson's kindness.
The author has combined a lovely story with a clear message about bullies, which with Tracy's wonderful narration is perfect for children.

The kids will want to listen to Hershey Learns a Lesson over and over again
Poor little Nomi was my favorite character. She is small and kind and has to deal with Hershey the bully
Tyson flying around the backyard with Hershey biting his tail
This is a very short book, great for children. Takes maybe 15 minutes. It's hard to keep a child's attention longer than that anyway
