Lots of reviews and product info but nothing to tell you the most important information about audiobooks, and that is that these stories are abridged. Nothing wrong with that, but Id have liked to have known this before purchasing

I bought this collection for my son's 7th birthday nearly a year ago, and they have hardly been out of the CD player since. These stories truly are modern classics sure to be loved by almost every child and the readings are beautiful and humorous.

We were lucky enough to get this collection recently and it is wonderful. The talent reading the stories are some of the UK's most wonderful actors including Simon Callow, Miriam Margolyes, Geoffrey Palmer, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie - to name just a few. Their voices bring alive these stories from my childhood and I can't wait till my children are old enough to enjoy them too.

As for the contents I can only refer to the other reviews. I would just like to add that the CDs come in a practical, decorative small round storage case with a zipper (not in individual plastic cases) and do not need much storage space at all.

This set is so very good and such good value.

All of the books are fantastically read and will entertain children and adults. When I'm sick of the radio and music I play these on the way to work!

This collection of audio CD's is absoloutley fantastic and great value for money. My daughters aged 4 and 6 love them. Just one warning - i bought them to help my 6 year old daughter fall asleep as she was struggling to get off to sleep - however it didn't work as she wanted to get to the end of the stories! All in all though, I think they are one of my best ever buys!!!

I was very lucky to be able to get hold of this at a special price. The set is beautifully presented with each CD being held within it's own individual casing inside the zipped packaging.

On the back cover it tells you who reads the story, how many CDs there are and then if you look inside each CD has the running time on them. The stories are read extremely well, I have listened to them myself and also within the school I work. The children I work with all have social, emotional and behavioural difficulties and they LOVE listening to these audio CDs. Where you imagine the chapters (or parts of books) to end there is a small muscial interlude which focuses your attention.

This would make a great gift for someone, or for yourself. I can't recommend it highly enough and it was such a joy to be able to have a copy of my own.

A great collection of cd's which my children have enjoyed listening to in the car. My only complaint, was that the description stated Georges Marvolous Medicine was part of the collection and it was not. But it was still 10 great Roald Dahl stories which have been listened to and enjoyed.
