Poor value as only choice during free trial

I regret choosing this title as my free trial book because it is so very short. The story is lovely and the rendering is great but it is far too short to evaluate the service. My fault entirely I know, but i regret my bad decision.

Great book shame about the character voices

What did you like best about The Gruffalo's Child? What did you like least?

Love the story and the narration is good, shame about the Character voices, would have paid more to have an additional reader.

Another Julia Donaldson favorite!

As the Gruffalo books are such a hit with my two year old niece, I downloaded this audio book for her to listen to in the car. This sequel to "The Gruffalo" is an absolute winner...the words and story are so clever that even adults reading it for the first time are enthralled. My usually crazy-energetic niece sat quietly for 15 minutes with big eyes while she listened to it. We love the Gruffalo much that I've put together a Gruffalo puppet show based on this story and the first one to do at my niece's third birthday party!

Wonderful childrens tale

My daughter requests to listen to this all the time, in the car and in bed. The narration by Imelda Staunton is brilliant at bringing out the story without the aid of the pictures.
