We love this one....

My 6 year old Son has had this audible book for quite some time now and it’s always one he comes back to time and time again - I remember enjoying this story from my school days and glad to see it’s still a popular choice :)

5 year old son loved it

Once we got over the I production, whereby he wasn't quite sure about the story as worried it was too scary, he really laughed at and enjoyed the stories

Daughter Loves it

My daughter loves this audiobook, however I find it really rather irritating. I think another narrator would be better suited. Someone like Griff Rhys Jones who narrates the animated series

Great though the music was odd

Enjoyed listening to these with my children although I thought the music was odd, the intro music made it difficult to hear the words properly through the crooning and the I Cruden talk music was a bit ominous, which doesn't fit with the mood of the book. Apart from that it was good to hear all the stories on a compilation.

Doesn't work on audio

Love the books of these, but it just doesn't work on audio unfortunately. The physical books have pictures that are key to the story, and it doesn't work if you can't see the pictures.
