Painless long car journeys with two young boys!

Any additional comments?

These books were my favourite when I was a child and I've loved listening to them all over again as brought to life by Kate Winslet. My children also love them and roared laughing particularly at the deaf old Saucepan Man and we've been on several very long journeys without the usual squabbles and mithering. Highly recommend.

Enthralling for my 6 year old

Very good and lovely. I like all the faraway tree books.
- Jack, aged 6

A book he preferred to watching TV. We often heard squeals of excitement as he listened. Kate Winslet's narration was excellent.

Perfect for the car

The kids loved it, and husband and I had forgotten how trippy some of the stories are. Good wholesome fun, and Kate Winslet is a lovely narrator, it certainly helped along some very long car journeys.

Simply enchanting

What a gem this story is. The whole family loves listening, including daddy. Refreshing to have an imagination spark that works for both boys and girls. Kate is amazing at narrating.
