Magical

I loved this book as it took you on a journey into another world & bought out the Inner child in me. Definately worth purchasing & Kaye Winslet is a fantastic narrator.

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!

Loved loved loved

My kids were absolutely enraptured by this story. It took me back to when I was a little girl and I adored watching them get completely immersed in the beautiful world Blyton created in a time gone by. It’s such a magical tale.

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.
