Stephen Fry reading Sherlock Holmes is utter perfection. My favourite audiobook to date. Have been recommending it to everyone.

Have you ever wondered how and why the animals came to be as they are? In these magical tales, drawn from stories he heard as a child in India as well as on folk traditions he later collected all over the world, Rudyard Kipling gives some wonderfully imaginative explanations.

Nicely read and of course the stories are great. However, audiobook is split into only 2 chapters, so can’t skip to requested stories when needed - very frustrating.

Penguin presents Dirty Beasts by Roald Dahl, complete and unabridged and raucously read by Miriam Margolyes, Stephen Mangan, and Tamsin Greig. The audiobook contains original music. In Dirty Beasts we meet a ghastly menagerie of wonderfully comic animals that can only have been invented by Roald Dahl.

Love this book anyway and great to have it as an audiobook. Unfortunately there are no chapter names though, so can’t easily skip around to required poems.
