the kids loved the narration... they could not stop saying "George.... " and the story is an obvious classic.
Listening with my 4 year old on a car journey, I remember now how much I loved this book, and all RD books when I read them as a child. Dahl really knew how to say the things that a child will understand, and think are hilarious. No pussyfooting around, it's all grizzly smells, gruesome silliness, slugs and snails and 'By Gum!'. Brilliant.
Storyline a bit repetitive, as is Roald Dahls style sometimes with childrens books. But recommended all the same. The whole family liked the magic concept of changing the size of someone. Derek Jakobi's performance was great. Colourful.
i read a lot..........
Read this book when I was a kid,still a marvellous book,plus it's Roald Dahl.Loved the performances of Derek Jacobi as the narrater, made it very exciting to listen to.
