I really enjoyed The Magic Tree House collection, great fun even though they are for younger children - I think they are brilliant. These books are fun and full of as much adventure as two young children can have.
My little brother loves this collection, so I would really recommend them for young kids (but also enjoyable for their older sisters!) Jodie age 14
Septimus Heap is a great listen, once you start with Book 1 you can't wait to listen to the following books. I loved each and every book in the series. Septimus Heap is the main character, he has a different adventure to protect his Magycal world in each book. He and his friends complete the quests, which are action packed - despite the suspense there are also lots of funny moments. In this last book the story is concluded, it has a great ending but I have to say I will miss Beetle, Septimus and little princess Jenna.
