A very peculiar and somewhat old fashioned selection of children's stories. My daughter thought they were a bit odd. I wouldn't honestly recommend it. Try something a bit more modern.

What a load of waffling junk, dated with odd grammar, boring and a waste of money

Bought for a car journey with my 8 year old daughter. She quite enjoyed it and asked for it to be put on again several times. I didn't know any of the stories, but they were generally well written and narrated. The first one, Picnic with the Aunts, I found very funny and beautifully written. It's my favourite! Only downside is that the stories tend to be old-fashioned so maybe don't relate to today's youngsters quite the same. My husband's comment was "Couldn't you have got something more modern?". I'll not record my reply!

I brought this for my class in case of spare minutes etc but it is a bit dated and to be honest we have only listened to a few of the stories as the kids got a bit bored of them.

This audio book was bought for my dsylexic 8yr old girl who i am encourging to keep interested in words and stories. She loved this puffin book and it suited her age group perfecly (she has younger bro and sister who are 6yrs old who got the puffin book of stories for six year-olds which they equally loved)and she wants more! Highly recommended.
