Still a classic and wonderful performance

I loved these stories when I was a child and bought them to play to my daughter. Highly recommended.

Need a second book.

I remember these books from my childhood. Was hoping that there would be a few more on there. Would be fantastic if they could do another one with the remaining stories. My Sons dyslexic and it helps him to read along to the stories, so we’ve mastered theses. Over all have loved listening to these, would just like more of them.

Highly recommend this series of stories. Great fun for all ages. I had these in book form when I was younger.
