4 year old enjoys the stories

There are four easy to follow stories which my 4 year old enjoys. Easy listening for car journeys.

My five year old loves the stories

Even though I, admittedly, do not find the storylines that captivating my five year old absolutely loves them. The one about the snake in school is his personal favourite and he asks to listen to it time after time...

Brilliant

my 3 year old absolutely loved this, DW is an awesome narrator! I also enjoyed it while we listen in the car, it's not annoying, even after 500x ha ha

I didn't want to be disappointed but I was

I really wanted to love this but was left lacking. Both the performance and stories seem hollow and 1 dimentional. There is so much scope for Walliams to appeal to oddball and diverse kids and I was really hoping Walliams work hit the mark but I just found these stories annoying.

Great sound effects add to the enjoyment!

Little girl (4) loved it. Her first audio book so wasn't sure how she'd respond. David Walliams does a great job and sound effects were great. Enjoyed it myself!
