Penguin presents Roald Dahl's The BFG, read by actor, writer, and Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams. This audiobook features original music and sound design by Pinewood film studios. The BFG is a nice and jumbly giant. In fact, he is the only big friendly giant in Giant Country. All the other giants are big bonecrunching brutes, and now the BFG and his friend Sophie must stop them guzzling up little human beans - with some help from Her Majester, the Queen.

In the last few months I’ve listened to nearly five days worth of audio books. This is without doubt and by far my favourite of them all!

Not only is the narration by David Walliams creative and colourful, but the subtle sound effects and the flickerings of music bring such a wonderful story (my favourite of Roald Dahl’s) to vibrant, pulsing life! An absolute ‘Must-Listen’ for adults and children, alike!

Penguin presents Roald Dahl's The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More, read by Andrew Scott. Roald Dahl turns his pen to anything, twisting everyday life into powerful and sometimes terrifying fantasies. Seven superb stories, full of Roald Dahl's usual magic, mystery and suspense: meet the boy who can talk to animals and the man who can see with his eyes closed, and find out about the treasure buried deep underground on Thistley Green.
