More About the Author

Julia Donaldson, the 2011-2013 Children's Laureate, is the outrageously talented, prize-winning author of the world's most-loved picture books including The Gruffalo and What the Ladybird Heard.

The Gruffalo, illustrated by Axel Scheffler, is now a children's classic and publishing phenomenon; celebrating 15 years in 2014, selling over 3 million copies worldwide, was voted Great Britain's favourite bedtime story on BBC Radio 2 and was adapted and broadcast as an animation on BBC 1 on Christmas Day 2009. The Gruffalo's Child and Room on the Broom are now also films, with Room on the Broom shortlisted for an Academy Award in 2014. Julia Donaldson's most recent books with Axel Scheffler include Superworm (2012), Highway Rat (2011), Tabby McTat (2010), Stick Man (2009) and Tiddler (2008).

Julia Donaldson has also published work with David Roberts, Nick Sharratt, Emily Gravett, Rebecca Cobb, and Lydia Monks. Her collaboration with Lydia Monks began in 2003, with the first collection of Princess Mirror-Belle stories. The fabulously glittery Sugarlump and the Unicorn is their sixth, and most recent, picture book collaboration. She also writes poems, plays, songs and fiction for older children and, together with her husband Malcolm, has performed her wonderful stage shows all over the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful. 4 Oct 2009
By Blossom
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These stories are brought to life beautifully by these CDS. They're just superb and make the perfect gift for car journeys. I just wish they were all on the one CD so I could play them at bedtime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful stories for all ages 4 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
Julia Donaldson has an amazing way with words. Every sentence and rhyme in these delightful stories are ticling the imagination of young and old listeners alike. The stories are all masterpieces - children love them and adults cant get tired of reading them alound. To complete the experience also get the books to look through - the illustrations coplete the experience.
A must have for familie with young kids - listening to tapes rather that watching videos sparks the imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great VFM 17 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
My daughter owns most of these books and we have recently given her a cd player in her bedroom. They are beautifully read and come in a lovely case. Buying the cds individually would have cost a whole lot more. They are also just the right length to play at bedtime after you have read the story to them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for toddler 'quiet time' 8 Mar 2013
By J Hutch
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My son who is two and a half, and a big fan of Julia Donaldson, loves these CDs. They are perfect for quiet time after lunch when I need him to rest and he will happily lie quietly and listen to these CDs for the duration of them (which is over an hour in total). Most days they will lull him to sleep without any effort from me which is a tremendous relief for me and even if he doesn't nod off I know he has rested.
The stories, it goes without saying are awesome; the Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler combination is a winner time and time again.

The only reason I haven't given these 5/5 stars are to do with the voices. On the whole they are fine and the stories are well read. The mouse in the Gruffalo is really annoying though. He seems to shreak his way through the woods. I realise that mice might be thought of as squeaky but this is almost too much. Even my son doesn't like to listen to that CD and the story is a firm favourite. The monkey in Monkey Puzzle gets a bit shrill at times too but it is much more bearable as it is infrequent. The songs don't do much for me either but that wasn't the point of buying them for me.

Overall, they are a hit and I am very grateful to them for giving us some down time without the TV - perfect if not for the squeaking!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! 7 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD
I was very happy with this purchase, the stories are read well and give enough time for the child or teacher to turn the pages. It was well worth the money spent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value 25 Dec 2012
By LKS
Format:Audio CD
I bought this for my 4 year old son who not only has all the books by this author but was having trouble falling to sleep.
The day they arrived I put one on for him and he was asleep in minutes and now has one on every night and they really help him relax and sleep.
Would recommend to anyone.
