I'm now reading these stories to my niece, and she loves them just as much as I did. Although they are suitable for a range of ages (5-11), none of the stories are dumbed down, they're infact very intelligent and some even quite frightening (be warned!). The thing I like most is that every story contains a hidden moral message about life which me and my niece usually discuss afterwards!
All in all probably the best childrens book ever written.
I really enjoyed this - and unusually found that the Narration improved my memory of the story. My daughters where entranced and still go back to listen again and again.
Two negatives spring to mind - my daughters stayed awake on a recent long car journey (when we would have preferred them to sleep) because of the stories and it sets a standard difficult to follow.
