The changes in tone between songs and stories create a true adventure, linking the emotive power of sound to children's developing proficiency in language and self expression.
For its instinctive ability to engage with the inquisitive young mind, particularly through the sounds and rhythm of language, it is reminiscent of the Ahlbergs. However, this audio adventure is surely a forerunner in an emerging genre that marries the traditional values of children's literature, with the benefits of music.
It was the endearing characterisation that really made the stories for me. Notably, Confucius the dragon, and the wizard with the over-sized cloak- each supplying their own brand of indisputable wisdom.
A traditional touch of magic and wit, with Honey, Pickle and friends.
As a teacher of English, I was enthused by both the lively stimulus for the imagination, and for the cognitive development of the child.
In the BEST category, because these are stories that no child has ever heard before, that are enchanting and engaging and full of music and song too!
When the boy, Prince Mu, apologises to the Dragon, for being careless with his bow and arrow! A charming, yet moral moment in a gentle tale that is cleverly underpinned with important values.
This narrator certainly offers a vast array of funny, quirky and engaging voices and it's hard to pick a favourite from the two great heroines - Honey and Pickle - who are, as the song goes: 'A Double Act'.
Yes - it is very engaging and well paced - but it is also nice for very young children that they can enjoy each short story (18 minutes) just before bedtime. 'The Lullaby' sung by the mother is a real favourite with my daughter. Also it is fantastic that there is an entire 4th Chapter with just the songs - played one after another - to dance and sing along to!
Yes - this is a 'musical' audiobook - a great combination of two fun elements - songs and stories, perfectly combined and balanced. This is so much more than just listening to a story being read. This is the singularly unique difference between this set of adventures and all the other audiobooks out there. A great listening experience.
This is a tailor-made audiobook, not available in print, designed to be heard!
We really liked all the characters and their voices; eccentric Queen Mu; Hazza the bumbling Wizard; and the heroes – Honey and Pickle – who really made us laugh with their funny little quirks. We also really loved the mix of music, sound effects and story.
We couldn’t decide on our favourite … as we loved them all … but what we really enjoyed was the transformation from an ordinary sleep-over, through the magic portal, into an adventure in ‘Mu Mu Land’, then back home again … just in time for the lullaby.
Join the ‘Mu Mu Club’ and travel into an enchanting world of magic, stories, laughter and song.
‘Mu Mu Land’ is as zany as Alice’s ‘Wonderland’ … as exciting as Peter Pan’s ‘Neverland’ … and packed full of fantastic, original songs.
If you love music and exciting stories … check this out!
"Brilliant Combination of Stories and Songs"
Yes - I would recommend this to all my friends who have young children - to provide them with a wonderful introduction to language and music. Fabulous fun listening to stories - with lots of opportunities to move and dance along to the songs too!
It's got all the classic ingredients required to engage young listeners - and yet it's fresh and new, with brilliant songs and sound effects throughout. Highly original stories.
We loved the argumentative ladybirds and Confucius the Dragon.
Step through the magic portal into a world or adventures and songs.
A true audio experience.
