Background music makes it awful.

I was looking for something light to listen to at work and thought Hank would be perfect. After reading most of the books to my kids years ago I knew the stories were entertaining and not too involved. For some reason background music was added behind the narrator's voice making this audio book unbearable. I could only listen for about 5 minutes before turning off my ipod. As a mother of four I can honestly say that I don't think kids would even be able to take the background music for very long.

The background music was VERY annoying and distracting!!!! The story itself might have been better without all that hokey music. I did like that it was read by the author. My kids enjoyed it more than I - which is why we actually finished listening (I would have turned it off before the first chapter was over).
