Runner and mother of two from Hove, UK. Relies on good audiobooks to stop the kids from fighting in the car. Occasionally buys one for her.
We had one of those hideous M25 journeys - 2hrs turned into 5 and a half hours - bumper to bumper in driving rain.
My two boys (aged 5 and 7) listened to this story straight through, with delighted giggles at the yucky bits. Thank god we had it!! Other wise the journey would've been 100 times more horrible.
I loved this book when I was younger and listening to it again is just as great as the first time. Eva Ibbotson Creates such gruesome but loveable characters! Prunella Scales has a wonderful voice and brings the characters to life. Brilliant for listening while doing other boring things like tidying up!
