Any additional comments?

This book is funny for kids and adults. The humor and language are clean, and the voices are hilarious! He does a great job on the voices and also in the songs! There are some sweet messages in this story, but I don't believe the messages are the priority, so if you're simply looking for a fun story with good humor, this is a great choice. It's festive too!
