good stories but boring reader
on 3 March 2006
Both my four year old daughter and I like the stories but having listened to The Enormous Crocodile read by Stephen Fry and other stories read by Hugh Laurie, we were both disappointed by the Hugh Lupton's lack of enthusiasm and zest when reading the Story Tree.
My daughter quickly pointed out that all the characters have the same voice, even the old lady and the young girl in the Magic Porridge Pot.
I think how a story is read (especially one without the visuals) is essential for its enjoyment so all these stories would have benefited from a different kind of reading.
