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.

A classic, perfectly performed by Hugh Laurie.

Every bit as brilliant as the first time I heard it 25 years ago. Hugh Laurie is spot on. It is impossible not to listen from beginning to end.
