4.0 out of 5 stars Quite good 22 Aug 2011
By Zingy
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought for a car journey with my 8 year old daughter. She quite enjoyed it and asked for it to be put on again several times. I didn't know any of the stories, but they were generally well written and narrated. The first one, Picnic with the Aunts, I found very funny and beautifully written. It's my favourite! Only downside is that the stories tend to be old-fashioned so maybe don't relate to today's youngsters quite the same. My husband's comment was "Couldn't you have got something more modern?". I'll not record my reply!

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but a bit dated. 14 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I brought this for my class in case of spare minutes etc but it is a bit dated and to be honest we have only listened to a few of the stories as the kids got a bit bored of them.

My eight yr old daughter tucked into these stories and enjoyed every page. She loves reading and enjoyed the stories for seven yr olds that I was told to order this one! And I cant complain at all since she loved the book
