5.0 out of 5 stars Rediscovering the Wombles 23 May 2011
The Womble books are an absolute pleasure to read to my 6 year old son. They are so rich in detail and characterisation and have completely won my son's heart. I would recommend them to anyone with young children as a nighttime read before bed. So much better than the animated 1970's tv shows.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely stories for children and adults alike. 9 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Such a pleasure for adults and children alike to enjoy these stories. I bought several original stories some time ago (this one new, as a treat for DS), and our son (8) loves it when we read them together. He's a Doctor Who fan too, but loves the Golden Oldies just as much. Enjoy reading them together. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars buy them all 2 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
All these books are great for bedtime reading to our little ones. Each book has a long story with each chapter being a self contained story which is just long enough (or short enough) for reading at bedtime. The chapters are easy to read allowed and have held our twins captivated. Plus you get to re-live all the adventures of our childhood favourite characters.

If any more are published in the series we will buy.
