4 year old girl fixated for HOURS!

My daughter has just turned 4, and can I get enough of these. Kate Winslett is absolutely incredible as a narrator- perfect pace and voices for all the characters. Now that she’s not napping, I’m able to still get a couple of hours each day as she sits and draws while listening to these!

Wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So much adventure, packed full of action so interesting! You just can’t stop listening; the characters are unusual and there’s so many twists and turns you’d never expect! The voices are amazing, and it makes you feel like you’re right there seeing it all happening!
