This was bought for my 11 year-old son who doesn't read many books but of the authors he has come across, he likes Michael Morpurgo's stories. He listens to a lot of audio cassettes or CDs at night so this seemed the ideal choice. He has really enjoyed it and says the stories are original and interesting.
Excellent series of stories for children of all ages. My 9 year old grandson asked for this as a birthday gift after receiving another at Christmas. Anything that makes children start reading as first class in my opinion.
Bought for use on long journeys with the grandchildren, an excellent way to pass a long journey and avoid squabbling between frustrated children! I but must admit to playing it even when grandchildren not with us!
In addition to the essential 'good story' the equally important feature of an audio tape is the voice of the reader.. On this Classic collection volume 1 CD by Michael Morpurgo there is both. The stories -based on true facts- are excellent and the readers speak with clarity and sensitivity. (If only many of the international tv communicators would reach their standard). I recommend this audio unreservedly to adults and children alike.
