Magical <br />

Great childhood memories come to life!

Loved the narrator and the story was great fun! each chapter is it's own short adventure so it's hard to listen to the whole book at once but great every now and then and perfect to listen with kids!

Family favourite

I loved this as a child and my young boys now enjoy the story on long car trips. Great to hear the stories again for us parents and the narration is not irritating as with a lot of other children's audiobooks.
