Don't waste your money

Story was nice but it was a rip off. The whole thing is the same price as a book and I did not see it is only 9mins long.
How can audible charge full price for this book.

Only one chapter

So disappointed to realise this was only one short 9 min long story. Missed previous reviews. Have read the Faraway tree collection but this lone story is Not value for money.

Not worth an audible credit!

I only wish I'd noticed this audio book was 10 minutes long before I'd purchased with Amazon credit (worth £7.99).

This really should be a free audio book!

Me & my daughter have recently enjoyed listening to Enid Blyton's audio books so we disappointed to say the least.

Note to self : Check the length before buying!

Not fair

My 5 year older said IT WAS BAD I DID NOT LIKE IT
Only 9 minutes long is a joke.
