i bought this for my 5 year old daughter to listern to in bed. after i read her bedtime stories, she begs me to read her more. now all i have to do is put this cd on and she's happy to go to sleep listerning to it. it is a good story cd the story tellers are good, but i do have a few problems with it. it would have been nice to have a few sound effects in the stories, also the intro music for each story goes on for a bit too long. i also have to start the cd at story number 2 which is goldilocks because the one before it (jack and the beanstalk) scares her slightly, which is not a good idea at bedtime! i will be looking out for more story cd's but not necessarily these ones.

In general I like this CD. Both narrator's voices are nice and the stories padded out nicely so making them a decent length for bedtime. Unfortunately my 3 yr old freaked out after listening to the jack and the beanstalk story - the giant chasing Jack was presented too scarily and he wouldn't go to sleep for hours - we now start the CD at no 2 goldilocks which he really likes!!

Bought this for my 5 year old granddaughter and it's absolutely perfect for that age, although my 7½ year old grandson also listens even though he pretends he's not. My husband and I particularly love Lenny Henry reading the story of Puss in Boots with his various voices for the different characters. The "deep south" drawl for Puss is hilarious.

My daughter is 3 years old and absolutely loves listening to nursery rhymes and stories in the car. I bought her BBC Audio CD 'The Three Pigs' first and she loved listening to it...and actually, it didn't get on my nerves as much as I thought it would - especially as it's on continiously in the car and we drive around quite a bit regularly for journies of at least an hour. So I bought this one too. Again, it's a complete hit! Lenny Henry is pretty good as is Sheridan Smith. No complaints from me or my girl! Time passes nicely in the car now!

Both my children are under three but enjoy listening to audiobooks when we're in the car. This CD contains four stories; Jack and the Beanstalk (read by Lenny Henry) Goldilocks and the Three Bears (read by Sheridan Smith) Puss in Boots (Henry) and Snow White (Smith.)

Apart from the small interlude of music there are no sound effects during the stories, which as well as making them different from some of the other CDs we own, means that the words can be heard clearly. This is certainly a bonus for my son who spends a great deal of his time trying to repeat the words!

As an adult this wasn't too awful either, I particularly enjoyed Lenny Henry's Puss in Boots who sounded like a cross between Elvis and Theopolis T Wildebeast. Great fun!

These four stories are great - up-to-date language and humour without losing the fairytale spirit. Enjoyable for children and adults alike!

I bought this for my four-year-old daughter two months ago, and she is still listening to it nearly every day!!

4 great stories, really well-read, nice to have both a man's voice and a women's voice.

I don't agree with other reviewers that it's too scary for a pre-schoolers. My daughter is very easily frightened and she loves it. Fairy tales, by their nature, are a bit freaky! Ever read Hansel and Gretel?!

I bought this for my two boys, age 4 and 2. It was a little too old for them, even though they have the books at home and love them. No musical effects, just the story read by lenny henry who makes it all sound a bit dull.
