Hilarious!

We loved the books so having the Audiobooks to listen to in the car has been brilliant. Narrated very engagingly by the author and exactly the book version (my kids would notice, they know the books word for word) with extra silly sound effects. It's such a great price to get all 8 books in one. Highly recommend for kids age 6/7 and above - and their parents, if you like silly jokes too!

Mr gum

Thought it was very hilarious lots of interesting characters and good storyline a very good voice tone to the storyteller and I particularly liked the first and the second story with me gum because of the angry fairy and Mr gum is a very bad and naughty man. So I would definitely recommend it to 10 and over years😀😂 But it can't be perfect !

The funniest story we have listened to.

I am 9 years of age and I thought it was hilarious.
As a parent it was funny to listen to as well but probably only in 1 - 2 hour bursts!! Funny but quite intense and chaotic!

The truth is a lemon meringue!

My 6 year olds are just old enough to love this. They won't stop saying the catch phrases - 'bag of sticks!!'. My wife and I love this. Even my stoppy 13 year old daughter likes it. Great for car journeys - has us all giggling. Possibly a work off genius and genuinely unique.

David Walliams wishes he could be this inventive

Never heard of this show but found the audio. Andy Stanton is a genius. Why isn’t he a household name? My son loves this and it cracks me up, his dad, too. Brilliant....
