The late great Alan rickman

This beautiful story will appeal to children with inquisitive nature’s and a little taste of the macabre ( after all it’s not every short story where someone gets their skin removed)
And of course I have to praise the many character voices of Alan rickman . Apart from Thomas hardy ‘s return of the native and second of these tales from mandalas childhood that’s all audible offers

Alan Rickman's voice (*****)

I bought the stories because of Alan Rickman's voice. He really should make more audio books!
The stories are lovely too and I will be gifting these to my niece who is a big Severus Snape fan. :)
