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 !
