No chapters

Love Lenny Henry. Quite inconvenient that the stories don’t each have their own chapter to be able to select each story quickly

Jack and the beanstalk

The narrator for jack and the beanstalk (Lenny Henry) is phenomenal. I just let my 3 and 5 year old boys listen to it. He does an incredible job at making the story come alive - PERFECT for young ones!
I haven’t even listened to the rest of the stories. I had to write a review ASAP because I was so impressed.

Sheridan Smith

I wasn’t sure about getting this audio book as you can only hear a bit on the sample and not Sheridan smith’s bit and I just wanted to leave a review to say the stories she narrates are completely brilliant and my two and a half year old daughter seems mesmerised.

Absolute Classics charmingly performed

You can fault neither story nor performance in these charmingly read classics. I enjoy them almost as much as my three year old!
