A bit of fun....

Nice stories, nicely narrated. Like Lenny Henry a lot, wish there was more narrated but him.

Sheridan Smith

I wasn’t sure about getting this audio book as you can only hear a bit on the sample and not Sheridan smith’s bit and I just wanted to leave a review to say the stories she narrates are completely brilliant and my two and a half year old daughter seems mesmerised.

Overall very good.

Stories were very good. No deviation from the classic story lines. Some dodgy accents but we soldiered on!

Warning - no good for Highly Sensitive Children

The way these stories are read us not suitable for young children & should come with a warning. My son is 4 & we had to turn this off in 2 of the stories because it was too scary. He’s a Highly Sensitive Child so bedtime stories of giants killing small children & Queens ripping out hearts & eating them was understandably upsetting him. I know the stories but I didn’t realise there would be quite so much emphasis on these particular parts by the narrators.
Should come with a warning or an age limit!!
Also it’s very frustrating not to have separate chapters or titles so you can skip to the next one. A lot of music in between each book also.

fairy tales

the stories were short enough to keep a child's interest but I wondered why Puss in Boots had an American accent which spoilt it for me.

Easy listening, great narration

When I downloaded this, I was looking for something to help distract me (there was a storm going on, I was anxious). This did the job perfectly. I loved the narration, they really gave a good performance to bring the stories to life. I already knew of the narrators so that was an added bonus, they were voices I recognised.

The stories themselves were short but entertaining. I have actually listened to this several times now when I am in need of a small distraction. I would recommend this if you are looking for something to keep you entertained, or the kids. I shared it with my nephews and they loved listening to it as well.

Jack and the beanstalk

The narrator for jack and the beanstalk (Lenny Henry) is phenomenal. I just let my 3 and 5 year old boys listen to it. He does an incredible job at making the story come alive - PERFECT for young ones!
I haven’t even listened to the rest of the stories. I had to write a review ASAP because I was so impressed.

Baby to Sleep

It put my friend's one year old right to sleep. It was touch and go in-between stories because the music is significantly louder than the stories which is a little jarring.

My toddler loves this !

He always requests this as soon as we buckle up to leave 😂. Plus it helps to get him fall asleep for nap time.

If you don’t mind the uneducational stories you’ll be fine

So, I forgot that jack is a thief and Goldie locks is a spoiled little brat and that the evil queen from Snow White tried to kill her not once but 3 times….
But if you don’t mind all these plot holes, and others, your kids (I guess over the age of 5…) will love it.
