Imaginative, inspiring stories for young children.

This is a brilliant collection of stories, perfect for young children and ideal for listening to when traveling. The collection includes eight different stories with imaginative themes to suit every child. They can learn all about a magical sunflower, find out what the tooth fairies really do with the teeth they collect, go on an exciting adventure with the men who live inside the traffic lights, meet Grumpy Grandad and laugh aloud at the fun him and Crazy Grandma have on their holidays, meet some very friendly caravans, take part in a brain swapping experiment and cheer on Maurice the Mole as he causes chaos in Grumpy Grandad's garden.

Fabulous bumper pack

This is a fabulous bumper pack of Ann Twigg stories. Ann twigg has written some lovely stories for children and my daughter often listens to these at bedtime or in the car. Her favourite Ann Twigg story has to be Lea's magic sunflower but we do like grumpy Grandpa's adventures too. This is a great way to listen to the different styles of Ann Twigg and be introduced to some of the characters before going on to listen to others in the collection. This collection is suitable for both boys and girls and up to the age of around 7 years old. Would recommend this bundle and it is great value too.

An enjoyable easy listen to be enjoyed anytime

These short stories can be enjoyed by any primary aged children at any time of day. They are narrated well, with a soothing tone and great detail for children to be able to visualise the story. I was slightly confused by the order of stories 3,5and 7 as the characters are the same but I think possibly story 7 would be better read before story 5 which is the final story written about Maurice the Mole’s adventures. Stories 1&8 are linked and tell us of Leah’s disappointment as her sunflower doesn’t grow enough to win her School’s competition but yet develops quickly to bring her fame and happiness... and special powers! Then in the sequel, story 8, ch16&17, Leah’s magic sunflower takes her on adventures such as meeting the Tooth Fairy and bringing nature to life for Leah! We loved these stories, they were particularly my daughter’s favourites. Ch4&5 (the 2nd story) remind readers to be careful what they wish for as 2 school children create a Brain swapping machine which causes chaos in the classroom. It encourages personal differences, uniqueness and creativity. This was my son’s favourite story! He also really enjoyed the 3rd story about Grumpy Grandad and his constant grumbling whilst on holiday! It did not sound like a great holiday but made us laugh at times. The 4th story links to others by Ann Twigg about Fred the Red caravan relocating after needing repairs and finding his new home in an allotment. The 5th tells us how Grumpy Grandad guiltily goes in search of Maurice the Mole, saves his life with help from a vet then finally accepts his company and lets him share his garden! Happy to be able to grumble about him again! The 6th story tells of red and green men from traffic lights who like to escape at night to find adventures of their own. This time Mick the Mailman comes to their rescue as a green man gets stuck in a mail box. Story 7 continues Grumpy Grandad’s grumblings as his ‘Pesky’ Mole friend returns to eat his beloved tomatoes... which he happily shared with him in the 5th story (so you could swap the order when listening!?!) The final story, no 8 shows Leah’s sunflower bringing her magic powers. We loved these descriptive stories and will read more from Ann Twigg.

My 6-year-old thinks they're brill!

Great stories highly recommended. Warmly read at a patient pace that children can follow. Mine often listens to audio books over and over again so a lot of value here.
