chose as bedtime stories for my 4 year old. first story is gentle, magical, delightful. the others are sad (a bullied kitten), ominous (a child-eating witch) and so forth. they end happily but i felt disappointed that they are not the sleepy, gentle, "beautiful bedtime stories" i expected. older children will enjoy the humour and the performances from the reader are full of energy and expression. but again, too much for bedtime!
