'Edward Lear is famous for his linguistic genius & peculiar brand of humour.'Alan Bennett just enhances this fab collaboration.
For everyone I think from babies to adults, I say babies too because the dulcet tones of Alan Bennett is very soothing & rhythmic ~ for kids, the nonsense rhymes get them hooked in, every now & again asking what a phrase means, & for adults the wry humour & silliness just makes you smile. We as a family certainly enjoy it, classic lit that does not go out of fashion. Great stuff....
This disc has less than half of the book (which i also own), a few of the stories are missing, including the one about the children who travel the world which was half the reason for buying the disc, and there are only about 10 of his hundreds of limericks. A real disappointment for me but my daughter doesn't know what she missing so she's happy.
I bought it for my grandchildren who travel a lot in cars and a CD is ideal to while away the miles. I gather the reports have been favourable and I enjoyed it too. Growing old is compulsory; growing up, why bother?
