Book Description

1 Oct 2009

Three unforgettable novels have been turned into fantastic audiobooks written by the award-winning former Children's Laureate, Michael Morpurgo. Actors reading include Sir Ian MacKellen, Emilia Fox, Jenny Agutter, Tim Pigott-Smith and the author himself.

Adolphus Tips

A heartwarming tale of courage and warmth, set against the backdrop of the second world war, about a cat who survives against the odds.

It's 1943, and Lily Tregenze lives on a farm, in the idyllic seaside village of Slapton. Apart from her father being away, and the 'townie' evacuees at school, her life is scarcely touched by the war. Until one day, Lily and her family, along with 3000 other villagers, are told to move out of their homes - lock, stock and barrel.

Dancing Bear

A gentle and deeply moving story of a young girl and her bear, told with great charm by a master storyteller

High in the mountains, in a tiny village, an abandoned bear cub is adopted by a lonely orphan child. Soon they are inseparable, beloved by the whole village - safe, until the arrival of a glamorous film crew who need a dancing bear…

Alone on a wide, wide sea…

There were dozens of us on the ship, all up on deck for the leaving of Liverpool, gulls wheeling and crying over our heads, calling good-bye…
That is all I remember of England.

When six-year-old orphan Arthur Hobhouse is shipped to Australia after WWII he loses his sister, his country and everything he knows. Overcoming enormous hardships with fellow orphan Marty, Arthur is finally saved by the extraordinary people he meets and by his talent for boat-design and sailing. Now he has built a special boat for his daughter Allie – a solo yacht designed to carry her to England in search of his long-lost sister. Will the threads of Arthur's life finally come together?

5.0 out of 5 stars good stories 28 Aug 2010
By Mrs A C
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was bought for my 11 year-old son who doesn't read many books but of the authors he has come across, he likes Michael Morpurgo's stories. He listens to a lot of audio cassettes or CDs at night so this seemed the ideal choice. He has really enjoyed it and says the stories are original and interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic stories 19 May 2012
By Millie
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought these for my 8 yr old son to listen to in the car. The first time they were listened to he was thoroughly engrossed and didn`t want to get out the car until the end. We have listed to them a number of times now and his reaction is still the same. I`m no longer allowed to listen to the radio in the car it has to be one of his stories. Volumes 2 & 3 will have to be purchased. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for children 27 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
Excellent series of stories for children of all ages. My 9 year old grandson asked for this as a birthday gift after receiving another at Christmas. Anything that makes children start reading as first class in my opinion.

My son loves Morpurgo and he loved these CD's. The stories have been sensitively abridged and are read with real passion and feeling. Very good indeed.

Good narration, excellent stories. However if your child is an animal lover some stories can be quite sad and end up crying like mine did!
