im 9 and I love the bit where the monkey dances and the boy dances back and the bit where they're cleaning windows and the man shouts that the giraffe can't reach the high windows...when he can!

Well performed childhood favourite

Excellent rendition of what was one of my favourite childhood stories. Hugh Laurie helps being the story to life and it was nice to relive this Roald Dahl classic story. Great one for small kids.

Hearing Hugh Laurie sing was .... Interesting....

Didn't enjoy this book as much as other Roald Dahl books , and hearing Hugh Laurie sing was a bit strange.

Excellent and Beautifully Read

This is brilliant to listen to with the book or in the car. Hugh Laurie's voice is lovely to listen to and the music breaks the story up well.

I read this with my 4 year old and she loves it. Can't recommend enough.
