Ah memories ...,
This review is from: Mr Men Stories Volume 2 (Vintage Beeb) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As a child I loved the Mr Men books. It seems a simple premise - a world made up of characters whose names are defined by their personalities and whose personalities define their behaviour - but when you look carefully at it, it is genius. The illustrations were simple and each character was easily recognisable and easy to relate to. Arthur Lowe (more famous for his role as Captain Mainwaring in Dad's Army) voiced the cartoon series on TV and this lovely little CD features his grandfatherly voice reading the stories.
Whilst this may have been a trip down memory lane for me, it will certainly appeal to the little ones as well. Mr Men books are still as popular as ever and this is nice for car journeys, when the reading of a story is impossible (especially for those who experience extreme car sickness when reading!) Marvellous, magical entertainment.
