What made the experience of listening to Sue Perkins Presents Zoopedia the most enjoyable?

Sues quick wit and zany sense of humour make this such an enjoyable listen. Some of the episodes are better than others as should be expected, but overall a stunning performance and full of interesting facts and educational too.. And it's FREE!

These are the original Grimm tales not the Disney-fied version. Some are dark, some have interesting morals.. all describe the human condition, as relevant today as they were when they were written.



Many of the stories are well known, but there were many I had heard for the first time, which were really enjoyable.



The books is really enhanced by Samuel West's brilliant reading - he has the perfect intonation for such a collection of tales. Thoroughly recommend.
