One of the joys of picture books on audio is the way that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Here, it is the music that makes the difference in the read-aloud version of MAMA DON'T ALLOW. The wonderful jazzy introductory music matches the loose, easy-going illustrations and sets the tone for this adventure. Tom Chapin's friendly, relaxed voice invites us along, and the format makes it easy to read aloud from the balloons on the pages. Chapin's alligator voices are excellent--a little sly, a little rough, and each one unique. This delightful audiobook takes its story beyond what reading alone can do. W.L.S.
