My 5 year old enjoys listening to these when going to sleep however the music in between each story is very loud which is annoying as I think it may wake her up if she has nodded off.
I'd recommend this to families - it has so many classics. I downloaded it onto my phone before we went camping, and they loved listening while we sat around the fire toasting marshmallows.
The gothic novels were very enthusiastically enjoyed.
No, it's very long.
The music in between each book is VERY LOUD!
Amazing the amount of stories all brilliantly described and catalogued fantastic value for money. Each story came to life from Three Musketeers to Oliver Twist. Our favourite was Gulliver's Travels.
I ordered this book for my granddaughter, there was no info on the description of stories. I look at cover of the book , which gave me the impression that the stories inside were but sadly this is not the case. Most were not suitable for her.
