My 4 and 5 year old kids love the Blinky Bill TV program, but this really frightened them with talk of shootings and bad guys. At the normal speed, the narration is frantic too. I had to slow it down. It didn't engage any of us.
The narrator does an excellent job of providing an Australian voice for a classic story. The sound effects are simple and do not detract the children's attention from the plot.
Listening to the stories in the context of 2015, they are sweet. The children still laughed and enjoyed the story.
