Brilliant 5 star audio book

This is the second book in the Tales from series, but asit consists of lots of short stories it doesn't matter, which order you read it in. This set consists primarily of stories based around the seaside, but does deviate into stories about sschool runs etc. Another great listen

Tales to listen

This collection of short tales are mostly fun stories but there are a bit of everything. I liked the "manual" one and even the odd rhyme/poem (even thought that usual doesn't appeal to me, so that says a lot)! The narrator does a wonderful job at giving live to this short stories, in a way that I truly recommend to listen to them instead of reading. It really does bring a cool layer to the stories. Fear not non-english listeners, even though there are some stories with a strong accent I didn't had any difficulty in following the stories. Claire Buss has another collection of shorts you can try also, if the vacation theme is not your beach. :)

Great Tales! Great Listen🎧 Fun & Delightful!

Claire Buss does it again, she pens another great collection of short stories that are just as enjoyable and entertaining as the ones from Suburbia. These are as interesting and creative, I love how she started them off with “WK101 Writing With Kids - Summer School Module” which is just hilarious. Also love how she ended it, so poetically, so real and so beautifully said in “Pick Up Your Plastic”. This collection is just a delight, one you can enjoy all at once or a few at a time. They are the type of stories you can revisit and enjoy all over again, they make you laugh and are thought provoking. Claire Buss, thank you for another great collection, if possible I think I loved these even more! I listened to the Audible edition, Helena Little continues to deliver a great performance. She sets a great tone for each story, adds the right amount of humor and/or drama in all the right places which enhances the story and your listening pleasure. Thanks for another great & entertaining listen🎧

A really fun series of shorts

I really enjoyed this series of short stories. There were some definite snigger moments and really relatable bits, too. The narrator does a fantastic job bringing it all to life and overall I'd highly recommend.
