    Our sons, aged 5 and 7, just love this book and so do we. It is really funny and the reading is brilliant, it is easy to follow which character is which. You also pick up a few animal facts along they way.

    Pim is a baby aardvark, with a long, furry nose. He has tiny little claws instead of fingers and toes, and sleeps in a cosy burrow. But he isn't sure what being an aardvark really means. He asks his mother all sorts of questions, and she decides it is time he found out what being an aardvark is all about. In his quest to discover the world around him, he meets lots of exotic and interesting animals. There are snakes, cheetahs, elephants, and monkeys, and they all have something to teach him.

  • "Brilliant"

    Overall

    My 5 and 6 yr old sons just love all Jill Tomlinsons books, but this one in particular. The story is great, really funny and full of animal facts. Maureen Lipman's reading is just brilliant, how she can keep so many voices straight in her head I just don't know. But it makes the story really easy to follow. Highly recommend.

    Otto isn't an ordinary penguin: he is the first penguin chick to be born that year, which means that it is his job to look after all the other young penguins. But out in the snow and ice of Antarctica there is an awful lot to learn, and Otto has to discover for himself how to swim, dive, and catch fish before he can teach anyone else. And how will he do that when all the grown-ups are too busy to help?

  • "Surprisingly engaging"

    Overall

    This lovely tale of growing up in a small Scandinavian village held the attention of my 5 and 6 yr old sons for the whole 2 hours+. I was surprised.



    But beware, the little girl narrator does pretty much say "I used to think Santa was real but now I know that it is just the parents pretending" so be prepared to cough loudly during that part of the 'Christmas' chapter if your children are still believers.

Evil was at work. But who or what was behind it...? Listen to this book and find out!

    When the doors of the lift crank open, the only thing Thomas remembers is his first name. But he's not alone. He's surrounded by boys who welcome him to the Glade - a walled encampment at the centre of a bizarre and terrible stone maze. Like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they came to be there - or what's happened to the world outside. All they know is that every morning when the walls slide back, they will risk everything - even the Grievers, half-machine, half-animal horror that patrol its corridors, to try and find out.

Joe's got his own bowling alley, his own cinema, even his own butler who is also an orang-utan. He's the wealthiest 12-year-old in the land. But Joe isn't happy. Why not? Because he's got a billion pounds... and not a single friend.

    For anyone who loves sailing and adventure, Arthur Ransome's classic Swallows and Amazons series stands alone. Originally published over a half-century ago, the twelve books are still eagerly read by children and adults alike - by all those captivated by the world of adventure and imagination. Such longevity is not only due to Ransome's unparalleled gift of storytelling, but also his championing of qualities such as independence and initiative; virtues that appeal to every generation, whether young or old.

    "En af H.C. Andersens bedste venner sagde om ham, at han "har sået i det danske hjertelag som ingen anden." Det er sandt. Derfor bliver jeg aldrig færdig med eventyrene. De afgiver bestandigt nye betydninger, nye indsigter, nye afsløringer. Først legede eventyrene det danske sprog ind i mig under min morfars oplæsninger, da jeg var meget lille. Siden lærte jeg i skolen, hvad man burde mene om eventyrene og deres digter.
