Product description

This special CD pack contains four of Roald Dahl's much-loved stories. THE GIRAFFE AND PELLY AND ME: In this classic story of the Ladderless Window-Cleaning Company, we accompany Billy, who is lucky enough to join in the many remarkable and entertaining adventures of the Company's animals: the giraffe with an incredible stretching neck, the pelican with a magical beak and the dancing monkey. ESIO TROT: Here's a very tortoisey one that will become an instant favourite! Mr Hoppy is in love with Mrs Silver, but she only has eyes for her tortoise Alfie. She would so love Alfie to grow bigger, she says. In a bold attempt to outdo his rival, Mr Hoppy devises an ingenious plan to make Alfie grow and grow and grow...Wonderfully brought to life, here we meet THE ENORMOUS CROCODILE. He boasts that he is going to eat a child for lunch and sets out to trick all the children in his attempts for food. But his plots and disguises are foiled by the animals in the jungle - especially by Trunky, the Elephant. FANTASTIC MR FOX: Boggis, Bunce and Bean are just about the nastiest and meanest three farmers you could meet. And they hate Mr Fox. They are determined to get him. So they lie in wait outside his hole, ready to shoot, starve or dig him out. But clever Mr Fox has other plans! Find out what those plans are in this hilarious story, fully dramatized by Puffin Audiobooks.
