Brilliant stories in the excellent collection

This is something I’d love to see more of. Children’s books work well as audiobooks and can be a lifesaver on car journeys. It’s a shame to often see books that I already physically own as audiobooks for a price that’s just unrealistic. At least with a collection short stories it makes it more worthwhile.
