A Fantastic version of a childhood favourite

I loved this book as a child. The version read by Kate Winslet is fantastic. My nephews children (ages 4 and 5) and I listened on a long car trip. The children loved the story as much as I did as a child. It really does stand the test of time.

enchanting and entertaining

it seems like many kids's books today, are derivatives from ideas in Enid Blyton's imagination. Enjoyable and entertaining. would recommend to any child.

a lot of fun

Exciting, fast moving story for young kids... but is just as entertaining for older kids and adults (especially in the car). Our family found this audiobook a lot of fun! Also, we find that listening to these kind of stories refreshing after listening to an intense audiobook.

Kate Winslett you're a gem!

Narration wonderful, although, I do wish the original Fanny instead of Franny was used! My mind kept having to make the adjustment. I'm sure today's children could, and would, cope! Political 'correctness' spoiled the story in a very small way., for me.
