Loved it!

My daughter loved this story so much, she wanted to listen to it twice in a row and has asked for it again now that it has finished... The story was lovely - it is such a beautiful relationship between father & son.
The narrator Peter Serafinowicz has a wonderfully pleasant voice!

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.
