blast from the past

very well read, a great story. The only downfall is some of the English terms used in the book are irrelevant today so my children asked me what they were. Otherwise spend many happy car journeys listening to the story with my children, and discussing how I grew up in the English countryside as a boy....

Glad Venturing On It

I am glad venturing on this particular book, it's not often I venture on children's book, it's a surprise find it interesting and engaging.

I would give my thumbs for the author and the narrator as well. The narrator performed so well and find it amazing that he could actually exploring every character in this book, with their own accent. So Lovely!!!

From Movie To Audio(book)

I had watched the movie Charlie And Chocolate Factory a few years back and I enjoyed it. Then I found another Roald Dahl's work on Audible, I just happily spent my credit on it. Now I downloaded it for my children to introduce them the beauty of audiobook.
