Littlenose the Hero: Littlenose lives long ago, when fierce wild animals roam the land and it is very cold. His home is a cave, his clothes are made of fur and his pet is a woolly mammoth called Two-Eyes. Whether he’s exploring caves or taking a river trip, somehow Littlenose always ends up in trouble!
Littlenose the Hunter: Littlenose is learning to hunt. He has to practise tracking wild animals and spear-throwing. But being a caveboy is a dangerous business - there is plenty of opportunity to get into scrapes, and Littlenose is particularly good at that!
I remember Littlenose from Jackanory when I was a child. My son is now 5 and I'm not sure how much of the stories he understands as they're a bit long and a bit involved. He probably needs to be 6 or 7 to really understand them. Periodically, he bursts out laughing so he gets some of it.
That being said, the stories are really gentle, well read and funny in places. It's a shame these books have been grouped differently to the way they've been published in paperback.
The recording is nice and long so is very good for long car journeys, and it's the sort of thing you can listen to for a long journey and not get bored with.
