Myself and my six year old loved it. Great story and fabulous narration by the peerless Derek Jacobi.

Roald Dahl is the best

Listening with my 4 year old on a car journey, I remember now how much I loved this book, and all RD books when I read them as a child. Dahl really knew how to say the things that a child will understand, and think are hilarious. No pussyfooting around, it's all grizzly smells, gruesome silliness, slugs and snails and 'By Gum!'. Brilliant.

Excellently read

Storyline a bit repetitive, as is Roald Dahls style sometimes with childrens books. But recommended all the same. The whole family liked the magic concept of changing the size of someone. Derek Jakobi's performance was great. Colourful.
