A winner as usual

My 6 year old son adores the Famous Five stories and he listens to these audio ones in the car. He can re-tell the whole story afterwards too! Good honest fun just like they were when I was little, highly recommended!

Monotonous.

Faded out whilst narration ongoing at times. difficult to hear. Monotonous narration, needs more excitement.

Childhood favourite

I've grown up listening to the famous five, I'm so glad it is still available for my children to now listen to.
These stories use to send my imagination wild when I was a kid. I absolutely loved them. Still do.

Great listening for the kids

My kids are 4 and 7, they've listened to this series many times and still ask for it at bedtime. With different character voices and background sounds it's easy to become engrossed.
