Thanks so much for letting us have the ability to not only read the awesome Rauld Dahl books, but to hear it. Whenever we used to go on holiday we always listened to a book. My fave book is Charlie And The Glass Elevator.

Nothing is bad about it so far! I’ve had it for about five years and I luuurve it!! ♥️♥️♥️

Books not playing

I have bought a book and it will not play. The app keeps asking me to buy it again and again and still nothing. Very disappointing. Wasted my money!
